AQA NEA Computing - URGENT!!!

I have created a database system where the user and admins can login and register as well as some forms that can be filled in and sent to the database. I have about 5 tables where 2 are interlinked. I have made pages where the user can view some tables. I have used PHP, Javascript to create scientific mathematical functions and for page functions, queues and small hashing for some pages.

Since my system uses SQL what would i need to do to get more marks? Do I need to just join tables or would SQL commands like CONCAT, ORDER BY be ok as I have used these? I also don’t have any mathsy things in my database so what would be suggest tables to make for that so that I can use AVG, MIN, MAX, SUM and COUNT.

What would I need to make my project more complex to get more marks in the technical solution? When I look through the list of technical skills it talks about reading and writing files, OOP model, searching, sorting, data structures. Can these skills be added to a database system?

Even if it’s just general things that could be added to the project. It would be much appreciated.

UPDATE: So I just realised that my program is too simple as it my website isn’t dynamic as it shows the same thing to every user. What should I do now? My deadline is in one day.

use an if statement? to make it different based on what is input
I'm not too sure as i did OCR python but i sent AI my program and asked it for ideas to make my program more complex

i have made different forms for the users to use so i think i have kind of done that.
if i were to make a file upload system on the users system would that help me to get more marks???

Hi, this might be too late. Are you able to request an extension?

sorry i thought this was GCSE
however AI will be very helpful, dont copy paste unless you're allowed to, in which case source it, otherwise take ideas from it

Maybe by a few days. The thing is it was due a few weeks ago and no one in my class has handed it in yet. So maybe while the others are being marked if i hang mine in a tad later, it would be ok.
Also if possible would you be able to suggest what I could add to my website?
I was thinking of adding two systems to the the user and admin accounts. Do you think that would help me to get more mark? If i had a file upload system and grading system that are both separate. Or would it be too messy to have a system inside of a system. Thank you

that’s fine. i used some tutorials so if i change variable names, colours and only used a few parts of the tutorial. is that ok or will i have marks taken away as i didn’t do it really create it myself.

in computer science NEA you are allowed to copy parts of code but you have to reference

Your project needs to have a purpose to begin with, not just complexity based on concept used.

In this case, if you've already built php paged with user login, you can serve the content based on user id so it's not always getting everything from the tables but takes in account the logged in user's Id and filters data in select queries based on that user's Id..

would it be fine if i use the same tables that are in the database. my main project is to create a school system. so far i have a general school page with info on the school then a login page for the students and teachers. then the students and teachers have their own system with pages and forms to fill out. so would having a page that links the students and teachers to a homework system be fine. this enables the students to upload homework and the teacher to grade and see it.

Yes that's be better ofc, students shouldn't be able to see someone else's homework, teachers should be able to see all students but there's a class or course or subject aspect too if you can add that..

No because the crux of the code is still the same. What have you added to your NEA that you haven't copied from the Internet. Your code will be ran through TurnItIn which is an extremely stringent plagiarism checker so it will deffo pick this up.

I agree with the "purpose" idea but after you've met the purpose that your end user requires it for, I feel like it's just a skills based thing. For instance, for mine, after building what my end user required me to build them, I went back to them to ask whether they wanted me to build anything for them and they more or less gave me free rein to choose what I wanted to do.

Also don't forget, almost half the marks for nea will come from the documentation...

ok so long as my documentation is well written I can get a lot of grades.
After talking about my project would you say its possible to get a B.
