    That's excellent!

    Can you give a numerical example of dividing too?

    Are those the only two situations that result in overflow?
    Sure, for dividing, say again the max number we can store is 1000, so we take a very large number, 999, and divide it by a very small number, 0.123, this gives us an answer of 8121.95122, which again is larger than 1000.

    I'm not sure of any other instances that will cause an overflow error but those two should be sufficient!

    Yeah, there's only 2 girls in my college doing A2 Computing! I hope it'll be a different case in uni! You always get people telling you how it's a 'boyish' course -.-
    There were around 10 girls out of 200 students doing AS Computing last year and 3 students got 'A' grades where 2 were girls! :P

    Your college must be massive or full of techies.

    I assume your college's majority is white right?

    Close behind with 4! There were around 10 at AS but it seemed to be the one most people wanted to drop. 3 males and 1 female (Me). We're the only school in my area to offer a Computing A Level at the moment too! Sucks that not many people seem to give it a chance

    No, not really, I'm usually in the IT and Sciences building where there is definitely a majority of Asian/Indians

    I guess it's all to do with the demography of the area I live in.
