Igcse Computer Studies Coursework Ideas For Easter

xTurn on thread page Beta

 
  1. omg i need to think of a idea for my computing project and i still cant think of one
    i thought of a few but my teacher says that im not doing it unless i have a "real end user"

    so can someone please give me some ideas and suggestions on what i can do. most people are usin their parents as end users but my parents dont work so its hard to program something for them.

    i was thinking of making a website but i dont know for what........ and i need a "real end user" which narrows down all my choices!

    i dont understand why my teacher says i hav to hav a bludy real end user as i would rather make it up, and im confident that i can make it realistic....

    btw i really want a A for computing, for my exams this year comp1 i think i did quite well on and comp2 not so good so im really hoping to get a good grade for a2 cw.. but i think chances are narrow considering that i cant even think of a idea......

    ideas i was considering:
    • a hangman game
    • website for school
    • online shopping site (but i have no idea who it could be for)
    • time tabling system for myself (but would it be too simple?)
    • a type of simulation (which sounds good but what for??)


    do u think any of my ideas would be too easy??

    please some realistic ideas where i can get a "real end user"
    i wish my teacher would just let me make up my bludy client........ that would make life so much easier damn
  2. It might be easier but it won't get you the A grade you want.
    It's not your teacher insisting that you have to have a real end-user it's the exam board. If you look at the criteria for marking projects you can't get over half marks in the analysis section without good evidence that you have talked to an end-user.
    Whatever your coursework is on it needs to have substantial amounts of processing/programming to get a decent grade. Developing a website is unlikely to get you many marks unless it involved a fair bit of server-side scripting. Hangman would be frowned upon as it was the COMP1 skeleton program 2 years ago and isn't really substantial enough - who would it be for anyway?
    How about thinking about something based in your school/college? What other subjects do you do? Some students develop projects for their other subjects. E.g. multi-choice testing systems that allow teachers to add tests and record students results. That allows for two set of end-users - teachers and students.
    How about doing something for your school/college library?
    Do you have any hobbies or a part-time job you can base the project on? Or is there a local shop (newsagents?) or business that you can get to know?

    Hope this helps.
