    I think you should get the mark, I'm not sure if it asked to give the answer in 8-bit or if it didn't say that.

    Do you think you would get the mark without a 0 at the start? I considered it but in the end just put 1010111

    I talked to people from two schools in Newcastle (I'm in London), and they said they found it quite easy as well. My class found it alright too, so I'm expecting pretty high boundaries. I got 122 on my CA so I'm banking mostly on that haha
    Haha I got 2 high B's I'm banking on the exam😂

    It's usually 80% for an A* (ie. about 67/84) but I have a feeling it might be around 70/84 this time.
    Pretty high then huh

    Was a bit confused about the last question as the example output #2 they gave didn't match with the Pseudocode they wrote for Figure 5. Rock doesn't beat paper and scissors!
    Yeah I noticed that too haha, I just ignored it xD Although I did think to leave them a little note as to how Rock Paper Scissors actually works xD

    Problem was that you could either write the algorithm to fit with their pseudocode from before or those examples! Since it said not to change the pseudocode I ignored the example and wrote a note.

    Hi what did people get for the order of the handshaking process (numbered 1-4) some people have said the client started it whilst others have said the server first had to connect to the webpage?

    i said the client started it :/ and I thought the point about the server was worded differently than that but now I'm not so sure

    I'm pretty sure it was this order:

    Client requests page
    Server connects to database
    Server delivers page
    Client displays page

    Not entirely sure how it was worded but I think that order's right.

    This is good:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Revision-Co...+science+notes

    Tbh, AQA looks to be the hardest exam board for GCSE Computing/Computer Science. Every other exam board has piss easy questions.
