OCR Computing Advice

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by apmcarthur, Apr 5, 2012.

  1. Hi all

    I am hoping to deliver the OCR GCSE Computing from September of this year.

    I was just looking at the programming assignment (see below).

    What language would you use to approach this? I was thinking about small basic but most people on this forum are much more knowledgeable than me so any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Task 2 System password. 15 marks
    Design, code test and evaluate a system to accept and test a password for certain characteristics.
    ? It should be at least 6, and no more than 12 characters long
    ? The system must indicate that the password has failed and why, asking the user to re enter
    their choice until a successful password is entered.
    ? A message to indicate that the password is acceptable must be displayed.
    ? Password strength can be assessed against simple criteria to assess its suitability; for
    example a password system using only upper and lower case alphabetical characters and
    numeric characters could assess the password strength as:
    ? WEAK if only one type used, eg all lower case or all numeric
    ? MEDIUM if two types are used
    ? STRONG if all three types are used.
    For example
    hilltop, 123471324, HAHGFD are all WEAK,
    catman3 and 123456t are MEDIUM and
    RTH34gd is STRONG
    ? A message to indicate the password strength should be displayed after an acceptable
    password is chosen.
