    Sorry, am gatecrashing my mate's TSR to ask a couple of questions about L3 extended diploma in Computing (Edexcel)

    There appear to be no text books, no lever arch files or all that stuff you get with a AS/A2 level to store your notes or organise your learning.

    I 'get' that you get given assignments at the end of bits of time, like in 3-4 weeks, rather than once-a-year, but how do you file your day to day 'learning' if it's not on a bit of paper or a website? How will you draw on stuff you learned 4 weeks ago to do your assignments? Assuming you don't have a photographic memory!

    The course starts with (16) Object Oriented Programming, and (9) The impact of computing.


    I'm slightly confused by your question tbh
    Just get a memory stick and store all of your assignments and work there. You should get used to storing all of your documents on a piece of hardware. You will follow your teacher's instructions on what to do next etc. Don't be nervous. It's really easy and if you have any question feel free to ask! I achieved 18 distinctions overall and found it pretty simple tbh
