ICT 2.1 Use ICT Systems – Candidate Statement
Describe how you will approach an activity that involves the use of ICT. Use bullet points if you wish.
The purpose of my task is to create a spread sheet with two different universities. I will be looking at the cost of accommodation away from home.

Furthermore, I will be looking at the cost of living in 5 different places and finally, the cost of transport to these 5 places any additional costs The audience I am doing this for is my tutor. The final structure of my spread sheet is to look at the financial consideration of future plans that I am tending to do when leaving college.
Use ICT independently to carry out the activity effectively

When doing this task I will use correct procedures such as starting and shutting down the ICT systems. I will then select appropriate software applications such as word processor and spread sheet to achieve my purpose. I will use the spread sheet software to present information in a numerical way, to use functions to calculate the sum, to calculate the average, and identify maximum and minimum values, to show tables, graphs, to perform database manipulations. I will use input and output devices such as the printer to print out my work. I will adjust any mistakes I’ve made them and restore them when finished. I will use suitable names for files and folders to make them easier to retrieve later. I will back up my work later on a drive and usb drive. I will only ask for help when I need it and will explain why I asked for help...
