I don't think revision is really needed for Edexcel ICT anyway.

The mock paper i did was VERY hard. It annoyed me so much that i actually made up my own answers to the questions. I remember they asked sumthin like whats cloud computing, it p***** me off i just wrote collecting signals from clouds in the sky xD i still came out with a C though. I have no confidence in the exam coming

havent revised and have no knowledge on any of the acronyms (POP, IMAP, VOIP etc.) and gained 53/80 marks on an exam without even doing the two 6 mark questions so thats about an A. I dont really think revision is needed as you only need about 50 for an A and 57 for an A*.

LOL, I think I've done that question or a similar one before. I wrote a network of computer systems that use the internet and got 2/2.

I don't know, they choose the most random questions. Luckily I have the most random ICT knowledge in my brain. :ahee:

I think the average is about
36 for a C
43 for a B
50 for an A
57 for an A*

And my school said the grade boundaries for coursework were 59 for an A and 67 for an A*, I got 66/80

Darn it! At least you'll be able to bump it up with a good exam grade though :/ Why am I so terrified for all my exams?? :'(
