I am taking the Edexcel AVCE ICT Double Award and i have the exam in May for Unit 2, does anyone have any tips for passing the unit, or know of any sites that will help with revision?
There's no need to revise, it's just based on a pre-release material. You just have to annotate your notes where the answer is on the question paper.

Since you are taking it in May, buy or ask for the January 2005 past papers. Therefore, you would know what will come up in May 2005. For example, the functions of the organisation question appeared in January 2005, obviously this question won't appear again in May 2005. Furthermore, just improve the notes that will appear in May. Hope you get what I mean.

I recieved my Unit 3 assignment back today to do the improvements on. This was my teachers note:

"6/24 = U, Complex facilities not well evidenced in Tech Doc, if you include this improvement then you will increase your grade to High B /Low A, the rest of the assignment is excellent."

Then he says after that

"The complex facilties that you have not evidenced well in the Tech Doc are: Validation, Input Boxes, Sorting, Drop Down Boxes"

Can anyone help me with some of my queries:

a) How do i evidence them better?
b) Can someone remind me what Input Boxes are again (i forgot!)?

Thanks in Advance

You can order them from the exam board. Tell me the exam board you are following, and I will find the stuff for you.

Talk about the good things and bad things you done in your website. In addition, talk about the improvements and other stuff that you can add next time when you do your website. Furthermore, comment about the structure of your website.

Hey guys, my teacher has a copy of the Unit 2 jan 2005 test that was put out, I'll try and convince him to lend me it so that I can convert it to PDF and post up for you all - as long as this isn't against rules.

Hi mate,

I'm pretty sure it's not against the rules.

Any chance you could get the Edexcel ICT Unit 5 paper as well? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks AJ

Hi,
I'll look into getting it off him in the morning then - afraid I can't get Unit 5 though, since no one at our school did it!

You could write about what the evaluation is about. For example, 'this section is about the advantages and disadvantages of the system followed by improvements and features to be implemented in the future.

a) To provide evidence you need to show screen dumps (print screen button) of the drop down boxes etc.
b) Maybe you mean input messages? Well input messages are instructions to assist the user or receptionist when entering the require information into the spreadsheet.

Which exam board are you following? I can only help you if I know which one you are following.

Just take screen dumps on the complex facilities. The technical documentation should have screen dumps on how you created the complex facilities (e.g. take screen shots of steps you created a drop down box for example). In addition, annotate your screen shots.
