I did ICT with OCR..but I don't exactly know what I did for my coursework..
but then my teacher's saying that she marked them..so i guess i did do it..
also.. we used to do AQA but in year 11, we changed boards as we had a new ICT teacher. She won't tell us what we got for our coursework..ARGH?!

I don't think you would fail unit 2. If you don't do that good, you might get a low A at AS.

Indeed, I told you would get a decent grade without a grade C or above in the exam. I got a D in unit 2 last year (2 marks off a C), I still got an A overall at AS.

Aww, that was so close. You could have re-sat unit 2 and get a higher mark. Therefore, your AS grade would be an A. I guess you need to use the A2 VCE grades to push your overall AVCE grade to an A. You can do it! Good luck.

By the way, what grade did you get in uni 1 & 3?

Unit 1 - 15/24, this was the unit which was downgraded from 20.
Unit 2 - UMS = 69/100
Unit 3 - 24/24. That was a very thorough unit in my opinion and deserved nothing less than what it got.

Results so far:

Unit 4 - Hopefully 22, but haven't completed it yet.
Unit 5 - 63/100, but my PPW work in the exam was marked to 12/29, thus showing my actual examination performance was good! Although i'm retaking this unit (Next week) in the hope of getting up to 69 and match my unit 2 exam performance.
Unit 6 - So far, it's been given a provisional mark of 23/24, and hopefully it will stay at this, but i just need to emphasise some of the stuff a lot better.

How about you Trev?

unit 6: 77/100
unit 7: 91/100

Hey Guys!

I'm doing the AVCE Edexcel Unit 2:serving organisation exam on mon 23rd of may 2005. I want to now if anyone has any tips for it or if anyone knows any websites where i can get revison notes or practice questions. If anyone has any practic questions that would be helpful. It's a resit I only got 61 last time but if i get 70 i can get an A overall so i'd really like to do well in it.

Thanks a bunch!

Got any ideas what the benefits of a DSS (Decision Support System) is on an organisation.
Btw the benefit of a DSS is that it gives a manager information needed to make and evaluate a decision. the defenition is:

DSS usually provides individual managers with the tools for making stand alone enquires, analysis and computer models. - hope that helps

You could order them, as they don't have them online. Alternatively, you could ask your teachers for past papers. When you got them, change the questions to match your case study and do them. I did that last year and it works well.

No, I don't mean 2 hour exam...I mean 20 hour exam - not all at once mind.

Yes, 2 GCSE's for ICT...and I take General Studies because I'm not taking it at college... I'm doing the Performing Arts course which means you don't need to do General Studies...

The exam is not written aswell. You have to create a Presentation, use a publishing program and a word document - ...

That was my exam paper...

No, it's a 20 hour exam - Check out the AQA Webpage, under Double Award ICT...

I take General Studies because I am not taking it at College (I'm just doing the Performing Arts course)...

It's not a written examination....you have to use copious packages on the computer...don't try and suspect you know the course!

Which examination board are you with?

Mr J's site might be useful for you, www.computech.me.uk. I don't even follow the same examination board he teaches, but the material on his site has helped me a hell of a lot.

Unit 2 is easy anyway!!!!! lol. Good luck with it.

No idea mate, apparently the moderator thought it wasn't good enough.

But even if it was up to 17/24, i'd have been at least 10UMS's in to an A.
