Section II 11. Gif (accepted some varieties of vector formats) Why? Gif saves drawings with plain lines, not alot of detail, like logos and cartoons much better than jpeg.
Section II 12. You were not disadvantaged by getting 11 wrong. So, if you answered jpeg in question 11, and wrote that jpeg was more standardised than say, photoshop, and that this was important becuase the ﬁle was being used on the web, while still being an appropriate size due to the compression rate, and also included more colours than gif....that was three marks. You needed to have a number of reasons why, linked to the scenario.
Section II Easier to add to dreamweaver kept 12. You were not disadvantaged by getting 11 wrong. coming up for some reason...not sure why? So, if you answered jpeg in question 11, and wrote that jpeg was more standardised than say, photoshop, and that this was important because the ﬁle was being used on the web, while still being an appropriate size due to the compression rate, and also included more colours than gif....that was three marks. You needed to have a number of reasons why, linked to the scenario.
Section II Apologies for the spelling error. However, you didnt’ need a picture to answer the question...and if you wasted time whinging about the lack of said picture, then you have taken about the same time that I’ve taken on this slide to whinge about the whinging, when you could have spent that much time answering the question....Rude isn’t it?

Section III If this had have been marked this way, lots of people would have been grounded. Big issues: Lots of students didn’t answer to the keyword “Discuss”. Discuss requires you to give advantages AND disadvantages Some students who should have received 10, should have gone down to 4 marks because of this. *
The number one big issueThere were twoquestions, not one.
Big issues Not talking about enough issues. You should have about 600-700 words, which is about 6-7 pages of content You should talk about 5 issues to get to the top band
Little Issues You need to link to the scenario. Most people did this very well, but you need to be clear in each issue how it is linked to the scenario.
Good thingsMost people knew the syllabus REALLY well.Those that didn’t, and tried to just use common sensedidn’t do very well at all.You need to prove your knowledge of the syllabus byusing syllabus content, terminology and structure.
Ways to improveStructure your workWrite an essay plan at the beginning. Students who dothis are unlikely to “brain dump” (ie, just try and writeanything about what they know)This also makes sure that you don’t repeat the samecontent, which is a common problem.
Your paragraphsEach paragraph should address only one issue. This isso that you elaborate enough about the issue, you pingstructure, and you talk about enough issues.Use paragraphs! Remember markers are there at 9pm,waiting to get home, and you need to make it easy forthem to read and ﬁnd information. Make it easy for themto give you marks.
