    The 6 markers were soooo easy but i made so many silly mistakes beforehand. For example, 3 implications of the lack of access to ICT:
    I wrote, Affordability, Lack of infrastructure and government restrictions when these are causes but overall... i think the grade boundary should be somewhere around 50 for an A* seeing that this paper was harder compared to the past papers.

    Yeah I also put wireless network interface card and then I put a wireless dongle would be required if the media station did not possess a network interface card.

    Mark or not?

    My understanding of ICT is incredibly poor so correct me if I'm wrong but I thought a NIC was needed to connect the device to the local area network??

    Oh well, that's only a 3 possible marks and like people have said, the grade boundaries are incredibly low! No need to worry!

    How did you all find it?

    I felt like I didn't have much to say about the last 6 marker so I just rambled on about people being rejected job offers and a whole bunch of stuff like that haha. There were loads of crossing boxes so I was really happy about that And the questions asking about defining the World Wide Web and the Internet kinda threw me off because I hadn't memorized any proper definitions so I just wrote whatever I thought made sense. Overall though I'm quite satisfied, I expected it to be really difficult but it wasn't super challenging.
    What about you guys?

    Oh and did anybody else end up finishing the exam really early? 1 hour and half was quite a lot of time tbh hahah

    I found it OK! What threw me is the fact that the first question (the media station or whatever) wasn't relevant to ANYTHING in the syllabus guide by edexcel! The last 6 marker was weird worded but it was easy enough once you knew what it was asking for. Overall, fairly satisfied I did well and now hope it's enough to get me a good grade!

    I didn't find that paper that hard, I would say that I probably got midway between the 40-50 marks category, which I think is alright considering that we hadn't learnt any theory before 2 weeks ago.
    How do you think this compares to last years exam?

    The questions on what are the world wide web and internet though...

    Same, I think that seems to be the general trend.
