    Is this a wind up?

    One hell of an interesting exam from what pupils telling me! A large mark question that is not in R001 specification potentially will need to have a look if they are right!

    a 10 marker on email etiquette? My students found it remarkably similar to all the mocks we've done (which we've taken from tes resources). They're happy... I'm happy.

    Yes that was a good one but optimisation of an image is a bit unfair as it is not in R001 spec

    I have emailed OCR querying the weighting of this question (over 10% of exam) on a topic not included implicitly in R001 specification explaining my concerns about the weighting of the question but not the inclusion (as it was in the research tasks). Bit unfair asking for 8 marks on something only referred to as 'graphics manipulation software' within the whole of the specification for R001 and no actual mention of 'Image Optimisation'?
    I will let you know about any response.

    As per usual, after posting a comment, I re-read things and find a glaring error. I have now seen that on page 9 it says "the factors affecting the appropriate optimisation of electronic files (e.g. download speeds, quality of product)" ...
    doh!
