Yeah mate it was really hard. I mean last year I found hard, but this was worse. Did so many AS papers and they all had similar questions. But today had questions never seen before and stuff I have never been taught. Hope the grade boundaries are low. Don't worry about A2 next year, if you're not in year 13. It's a lot easier than the AS.

Thanks - well remembered!

For the HCI question I might have messed up because I didn't state that a game playing device was an example of a GUI? Is that required? I also put a disadvantage of a game playing device was addiction + social isolation and the advantage as fun to use / colourful.

For the touch sensitive device i put for use: buying tickets at a train station, advantage: quicker to enter information than typing as you dont need a keyboard, disadvantage: you might not have all the options you need and dirt can cause problems

How many marks do you think I'd get for that question (out of 6)

Also for Q16 I put the startup user inference would be user-friendly for the user as they are novice users of spreadsheet software. Would that get me a mark perhaps?

For Q13 I talked about expert systems, blood tracking and body scanning??

For Q8 (acts and crimes) I was talking about allocation of access levels to users by managers (i didn't put auditors as I forgot to use that word), investigating instances of bug abuses of the system?

Think you did quite well on those questions. However, Q8 is the only one which may have not went as well. Thought it was more on the DPA, Computer Misuse Act and Copyright, Design and Patents Act

Definitely yeah, one mark scheme talks about this which is what I wrote in the exam (ish):

Imageand another other mark scheme talks about DPA, copyright act, misuse act etc. as you've stated:

Image

and then you've got a slightly different MS to the other 2 posted above:

Image

So yeah and in terms of the other questions, I know from personal experience as I've sat this paper before the WJEC examiners are really really harsh markers and basically ***** so that's why even if i've answered a question thats nearly there but just one or two words of the MS then I'll probably not get a mark for it like for example not saying a game playing device for an example of GUI. I just put the name of a game playing device like playstation / xbox.

Hi! I wouldn't worry it seems you've done alright. For a game playing device, a simple use of saying a "joystick" on a flight sim would get you the mark there.
The start up interface I think was to do with navigational macros. If you've mentioned user friendliness I think you'll be alright.
Q16, I'm not too sure, I think it's to do with PET, Blood tracking with bar codes ext.
For Q8, I reckon it's naming the three acts, giving an example of malpractice then an extension mark. This probably being gained by adding two malpractices for an act).
I think this in all was an okay paper, however the health care was completetly unusual to any past paper resources I have seen...

Yeah, I think simply naming an act would give you at least one mark

Yeah fingers crossed. Are you in year 12 or 13?
Also for my spreadsheet i dont think i actually have evidence of sort but i remember using it on my price column to display the most expensve prices first and then i just said the purpouse was the shop owner to identify what the most expensive product was and leaat expensive but yeah like i said i dont have it clearly on my spreadsheet.

Same with the user interface. I just said its user friendly but my spreadsheet just goes straight into it with all the cells etc.

A2 is in a way easier as there are less topics and no spreadsheet faffle with section B but the actual content is argubly a little harder to make up for the less topics on A2 so yeah.

I'm in year 12 😀 If you said what page it's on, and why you required the data to be sorted. At least one mark hopefully.
For the user interface, if you mentioned user friendliness than you could get a mark.
What year are you in? And I've literally spent days learning the mark scheme word for word as I've heard about how badly people do on the course!!

Yeah I completely agree with you! They seemed to throw a lot of question that I couldn't answer properly because I didn't recognise the question. (And that's what you have to do to do well on this course right, because the examiners are very harsh )
Glad it helpled!
