Allot of colleges, including my own don't cover the 'whole syllabus', but you need to learn it yourself too if you want to get the higher grades. I don't know what syllabus you've been reading but this is computing, not chemistry the syllabus doesn't state every fact. It informs the candidate must have knowledge of various concepts, the RIP bill was recently added and therefore you might not have heard about it, as I said the copyright act would have sufficed but when the mark scheme is released I’m pretty sure the RIP bill will be the first thing mentioned. A smart card holds information on it, and allows the phone to be in contact with the server.

They don't expect you to be able to answer everything, you can miss a few questions you don't understand, and still get a grade A. What i liked about this exam was it was so varied; it didn't dawdle on one particular question, meaning if you didn’t know the answer, you would be in big trouble. Instead it included a wide range of questions, and really tested your knowledge of the subject.

Well written

what was the answer to the question asking for five fields and their datatypes which would be stored in the parking lot database?

how about the question asking for 2 methods of the parking lot ticket reader being able to locate the correct record in the database from the ticket (i think that was the question)? I assumed it wanted two different methods of input so I put bar code reader and magnetic stripe reader.

I reckon I screwed up quite badly. I don't even think my answers on the real-time and batch processing questions were clear enough.

Aggghhhhhh I forgot to add the 1!! i just did 17+2*1500. Will they mind? lol.

i didnt even answer the parking one! and i know what the answer was, I didnt do the one were u had to make a QBE thing. I also didnt do the update file thing! i have really failed.

for the second part of the parking one what did u put in the table?
i put something like

Random Integer integer
Current date Date
Arrival Time Time
Price currency

i cant remember the other one i put, it might have been price to pay which would have been floating point.

Ahh!! That's what I did!!! I knew there was a 1500 in it though hehe

Another thing that's been bugging me..

The dry running of that algorithm on the back page of CPT1, what did you get the string to read at the end, and what did you get for the tick boxes where you could choose procedures or functions?

not too sure I did CPT in Jan and the last question was a dry run of a program and it was the hardest one I seen, something about bubble sort which i had never encountered before so that messed me up from getting an A

The question actually said give the answer in bytes. Since you've put the answer in b and kb, you better hope you have a nice examiner!

For the car parking one there were five boxes wasn't there?

I put:

Random Integer - Integer
Arrival Date - Date
Arrival Time - Integer
Departure Date - Date
Departure Time - Integer

^-- I added the departure times because it stated that the data would be saved in an audit file after the car left, and I presumed it would need the arrival and departure times to make use of the data, even though on leaving, the time and date could be calculated on the fly.

PAT: TAP (Or the other way round, I can't remember now!)

I put print as a function, and the other two as a procedure, and I think I'm bound to get 2 out of the the 3 marks on that table!
