Scroll down to 'Sample assessment materials' and there are 3 tasks. It's well known that there is a shortage of good computer teachers.
Lots of students are being taught by ICT teachers and supply teachers who are not good with programming themselves.
You definitely cannot post those questions and/or answers. Here are a few more pointers, from a teacher's point of view: OCR have said to teachers that students are allowed to do anything they like outside of NEA lessons.
You very much ARE allowed to discuss your answers, share ideas, use internet resources, get your Tutor to help you or anyone you know who is a programmer, and so on.
I have to say that the teaching at my class is pretty bad and all that the teacher taught us were statements, loops and iteration...
I'm quite worried as I am one of the top students in my class (not much to brag about since I'm not even certain of the specification content itself! My teacher, before leaving (gg), said that we will get the specification, which I wasn't even told the number of, and according to OCR we will be provided with the mark scheme, so I guess the trick is setting out the project itself, using the mark scheme. You will be given a "simple" task so you do not need frameworks at all. No, but your documentation should look appealing so the examiners have an easier time marking it. I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote the original post, I'll make it in Python or C# with no frameworks.Everyone should appeal their marks to check the teacher is accurate.There are three main NEA tasks, but the teacher picks the one you will do.The teacher actually thinks that percentage knows how to self-teach? It's well known that there is a shortage of good computer teachers.We can also post the task here or in other forums and help each other. While this is true, the person reviewing does not need any more knowledge of computer science than the original.Just make sure you appeal your marks if your teacher is rubbish and it will get marked by someone outside the school. Casually talking through the task and saying how you would solve the problem is fine. Teachers mark and then a sample is sent to your exam board.The majority of NEAs will be checked, and because it's a new qualification, the majority of schools will double mark with a partner school.Feel free to post what you like and discuss what you like anywhere and don't let anyone tell you you can't. If you work as a group in the forum or at home or with friends or parents or other students from a school down the road, that is fine. You can easily do this by changing variables, layout, adding your own extra code, changing the code slightly, document comments in a different way and such like. Just make the code, the flowchart, the planning look like your own.If you don't you will not do as well as students who do. Of course you must not cheat by just copying a solution completely.For the controlled assessment, depending on the task, I'm either going to use PHP JS HTML CSS or Python. Do we get given multiple tasks and then we get a choice of which one we want to do? Second question, well, I asked my teacher if we can use external modules and she said 'no, only the ones which we are provided with', so I assume that it's the same with frameworks.But the mention of frameworks and GUIs makes me want to ask whether you've been taught how to code up all of this?
