Hi, Just thought I'd start a thread for all those sitting the WJEC ICT exam next month. This is for the AS exam. I don't know whether many people do this exam as its on the welsh board but hey-ho...

How's everyone feeling? All ready?

You've only started today?! Wow i wish i could be so chilled. Yeah just go onto the WJEC website and search for IT1 past papers. They are your best friend for this exam. (The only way of getting a good grade in WJEC ICT exams is by reiterating the mark schemes onto your exam paper).

Haha too true. I've finished pretty much all of my revision for it but its section B i'm tackling now. Why they make us bring a spreadsheet to the exam i'll never know. Bit of a ballache if you ask me.

Yeah, well I did a load of revision at Easter with some past papers but I haven't been doing much in the exam period cause obviously I've had other exams to focus on!!

I sat this exam in January, the advice I can give you is do practise papers over and over and over again. Memorise the mark schemes, all the questions are repeated. I did it and got 96/100. Trust me it works

Everyone who has passed this exam with a good grade has told me exactly this, so its all i have been doing but i'm really worried about the context marks so like giving an example, and i'm really scared the big question will be on something they've never put in the mark-scheme

I'm thinking - Data,info & knowledge
CAD/CAM
Business (question 8 - so like JIT, stock control, barcodes)
Advantages of spreadsheets (section B first question)
health systems e.g. sensors and blood tracking

i also think that ICT in school has a chance of coming up as it was not in the jan exam

Does anyone know how much the spreadsheet questions are worth out of the whole paper? Really not confident with it and hoping I can get high marks on the theory side of it!

Thank you! They are! That's why I'm concentrating so much on the theory side to boost up the grade as much as I can :-)
