Here is my attempt at this year’s paper (note this was done before the Marking Scheme was released so excuse any slips and do let me know 🙂 ) also I’ll be working on it over the next few days when I have a moment here or there.
Latest PSI Licence:
“Contains Irish Public Sector Information licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licence”.
Important Exception to the above Licence:
The State Examination Commission is the copyright holder which is providing the material under the above license (as per current directives and regulations from the relevant government bodies). However the State Examination Commission as an Irish examination body is able to use copyrighted material in its exams without infringing copyright but this right is not extended to third parties when those exams are re-used.
(For example: the State Examination Commission may include in their exam a copyrighted poem and this action does not require the permission of the poet but the poet’s permission must be sought when the exam is re-used by someone other than the State Examination Commission.)
Also, all derived and related work (such as video solutions, lessons, notes etc) are the copyrighted material of Stephen Easley-Walsh (unless stated otherwise). And that the above licence is for only the exam itself and nothing further.
