    I swear ICT is fixed...
    I know it sounds like I am moaning about not doing well but the papers were REALLY easy... I got an A* at GCSE and just a C at A-level.
    I mean I got low grades for things when I knew questions were really easy!

    Any way did any one else think the same?

    The is a saying if you find an exam too easy you have probably done it wrong. Its common sense when you think about it. You probably did answer the questions in the way they wanted you to. For example a question is keyboard an input or output device, discuss maybe require a good paragraph instead of one line.

    If an exam is easy then the mark needed to get an A will be extemely high (even as high as 99% or 100%).

    GCSE ICT is only easy because of the emphasis on coursework which is, with hard work, actually very easy.

    Aww, that must have been such a disappointment.

    I got an A in ICT at A2 today. My ICT teacher used to mark exam papers for the subject and he made us always write answers in bullet points so we could get out points across clearly and without risking waffling. It might be worth considering if you're thinking of retaking and/or continuing to A2

    ICT is officially the most difficult A-level in which to achieve an A-grade and has been for the past few years (this goes out to all you guys who think ICT is easy after not continuing past GCSE....)
