Anyone doing this A2 coursework I think it's OCR. It's where you have to go find a client (store/business manager) and talk to them about their system/database and you have to come up with a better design/solution to its flaws. Has anyone else just made up a client? I really don't believe people have actually legit done this unless like their parent's owns a business.

My teacher won't tell me what i got, he said that it's not necessary for me to know, so annoying!
How are you finding the theory?

sorry for late reply but I've finished it now There'sjust so much to remember for the theory tbh I have done poorly in the exam and I got about 48/80 in the coursework so perhaps a D overall

My advice would be, do as much of the database as possible but it doesn't have to be 100% working as you can fake the screenshots in your documentation since you don't actually need to hand in your database file, just screenshots and annotations of it. I pretty much made up all of mine so feel free to blag here and there if you need extra marks. For theory, well I did terrible at that and can't remember anything of it but make sure you borrow out the OCR textbook for it and just make notes. Sorry I don't have much good advice to offer, I did end up with an E overall in ICT :laugh: oh and i guess the website teach-ict.com is another good resource as it is specifically for the a level courses.

There are actually two different courseworks for A2 ICT: the one i did and another one which i heard involves making a web page so if you're doing that one, i've heard it's a lot easier than the one i did

Aw no i'm doing the database and already I know i'm going to struggle!! No, Thank you very much for the advice, nice to know they don't actually need the file and I can cut myself some slack and start making things up But congrats anyway for getting through it, it's not the nicest of subjects
