I am currently taking the OCR H046 AS computing course (2015 onwards) and I am having trouble writing algorithms in Pseudocode, especially in exam conditions. OCR kindly provides a list of Pseudocode syntax that you are expected to know (and I am confident with) however, whenever I begin a question (albeit a 4 mark question or an 8 mark question) I usually do one of the following...
a) Simply do not know where to start
b) Get half way through the question and then realise I have missed something vital.
c) Overcomplicate the question and end up with working out all over the place.
I am curious to to know:
1) How do you go about writing algorithms? Do you complete any planning or simply jump into the question?
2) How could I ensure that I know what to write in the exam and complete the question in good time? (usually a minute a mark).
Any advice would be very helpful; I have practised writing Pseudocode algorithms extensively but most of the time I only pick up half marks or take completely the wrong approach. :-(
