That Blue Square Thing

WJEC Applied ICT A Level Unit 2 - eSkills

Note: this page applies to the legacy WJEC Applied ICT A level specification which has now been withdrawn (last resit opportunity in 2019). A new syllabus is available to schools in Wales that seems similar.
I no longer teach A Level Applied ICT but I'll leave these pages up as an archive which might still be helpful for someone, somewhere.

Part 3 - Spreadsheet Implementation

There are 15 marks for implementing your spreadsheet effectively...

This doesn't have to mirror your design exactly - it's absolutely fine to have made changes; in fact, it's expected. If the implementation is exactly the same as the design then the marker may think you implemented before you designed - which would lose you marks.

Some key points to note:

If you password protect anything please use the password "password". And make sure you tell the marker this in your e-portfolio. And, preferably, provide a version with no passwords on and no stuff hidden on it!
