Hey so is anyone doing this exam tomorrow? I'm slightly nervous as I haven't really covered everything (there's so much!). Anyone got any predictions on the 8 or 6 mark questions?

I'm doing it! I think it'll be stuff on sensors, computer control and/or legislation. They seem to be popular topics. Maybe even +/-'s of different communication services?

Ha ha, yeah it is already in my drive. There are a few details missing, but they seemed obvious to me.

I feel like one of the only people doing this course!
Besides the presentation i haven't done much revision. I didn't revise for the mocks and did ok.

And remember that tomorrows exam is only 20% (of the long course - which most people are doing). So as long as you did well in the Controlled assessment, you should be fine.

I have also used this website: http://www.memrise.com/course/199608/gcse-ict-bo61/ to help remember the key words.

Good luck

Same omg like no one is doing it haha and instead OCR nationals! Well, at my school we have three ICT classes so I mean? That's quite a lot at my school. I think I'm doing short course and mine's worth 40% and I got A*s in my c/w so I'm well backed up in that case!

I use Memrise too actually! I use it for Spanish and ICT.

Good luck to you too! I'm sure you'll smash it!

I agree! These seem like possible subjects which I never understand so I'll have to go through that tonight!

I think there will be something on the pros and cons of working from home as that hasn't come up in a while, Id say most things from the 2011 paper will come up again.

I have these online flashcards which have network hardware devices:
https://s.tudy.it/of1yt

You might need to sign up. And ignore the fact that it is B063, they overlap.

Do you mean the different types of computer? Or is it something else?

Oh, sorry yes it is. Would you mind summarising expert systems here?

Thanks
