    How much courework did u guys have for a level ict, how many pages?

    Apparently IT has the lowest grade a or a* percentage of all the a levels

    I wanna take IT but the things that I'm hearing such as the amount of coursework and lowest a grades out of all subjects worry me

    I expect the amount of coursework varies between exam boards, but I did A Level ICT with WJEC, and it was very time consuming. My total coursework came to approximately 300 pages, however most of these only contained screenshots and not much writing.

    I don't know if this is the same for all exam boards, but the mark schemes for WJEC are very particular, and you have to do things exactly right to gain marks, so looking at model work is very beneficial if you are able to.

    I gained a grade B overall (3 marks off an A). If you enjoy ICT and are willing to put in the time and effort for the coursework, I don't see why you couldn't get at least a B grade
