My advice is to complete the Pre release task as best as possible!!
Complete additional pre release tasks such as:

if they ask to draw a high level DfD for the current system ...
then in the exam they may ask you to draw a dfd for the new system!

If you put stuff which they haven't asked in the pre release and it comes up in the exam your done!!!

OCR people:
Desision tables are likley to come so i would revise them!

I'm doing the exam. Unfortunately ICT seems to be the least interesting i do. I'm aiming to get a B overall really, as I don't have the time or willpower to resit any of the tedious exams.
A lot of the unit seems to be common sense (for example, what you do at certain stages). The only thing you need to really revise is the order it happens and things like structured english/decision tables etc.
I'm going to focus on Math/Bio, and revise ICT again in the Friday/weekend before the exam.
Best of luck.

Hi

In this unit you have to do 4 evaluations. 1 for each image created and one overall. What kind of things do you have to talk about in the overall evaluation? Thanks

I am doing a design booklet for Unit 3 - Spreadsheet Design and am really confused on what I put into it and how i lay it out. I have to put in user requirements, output presentation etc. But i do not know what the output presentation is, i thought it was print database. Also the reason i have to ask her as my teacher gives me no direction or information on what to do for each section in this unit.

Do I need to proofread all of the 6 documents that I have created and comment on them too? e.g. standard styles for the document. I've got some people telling me I do and my teacher saying I only have to proofread one of the documents.

for OCR you need evidence of proof reading for all documents as to get an A the criteria states in simple terms:

"all documents have been produced to a professional standard with no errors remaining"

so even if the proof reading symbols are not present i'd expect that the documents have draft as knowbody can produce a perfect document first time

i imagine because this is a complusory unit for all exam boards that the specification is the same or similar

visit my website for futher help which i give my students in terms of this unit

In OCR you have to proofread all of the documents and the document comparison essay to get an E according to the mark grid. I would assume that it was the same for the AQA board as well but you may need to check the mark grid (the page where you have to page reference where all of the evidence is)

what grades did everyone get for the 3 exam and pre release units? i got a C for all three of them, i had a chance to retake them next month to get a better mark but i dont think i could improve on it.

Also those who are on the second year of the course when do you have to hand in your final completed units?
