    What did you get on your assingment? I got 58/60 so I only need like 47 marks in the exam for an A, thank goodness. But the paper is destined to be well put together this year because the SQA chief marker needs to keep his job after last years paper

    You will definitely be fine. I got full marks in my assignment and didn't even bother revising much for the exam and got a really good grade. You'll definitely get the A. And I agree, hopefully the exam paper doesn't contain many mistakes this time. Good luck

    I'm literally winging this exam, it's my next one but physics is the day after and my physics teacher hasn't taught us all year lol. I did okay on the assignment and got a good mark in my prelim so it should be fine as long as we get a good paper.

    That was alright. Assuming assignment is 50/60 and hopefully a bit better should be looking at an A.

    Teacher told me that I got 59/60 on my coursework and so far I know that I only dropped 1 mark for certain on the exam. I finished the exam in about 45 minutes and left after 50. To be fair, computing is my strong suite though so it is expected that I would finish a Nat 5 exam pretty quickly.

    Only question I think I might have also dropped a mark on that I could think of was calculating the size of the image. I can't remember if it was bit depth or dpi that you had to mulitply by and I only multipled once before simplifying to kilobytes. If it was bit depth then it should be correct.

    What was the answer to the component that allows the processor and hard disk drive to communicate? (I think that was the question) I'm not so good with hardware

    That is the one question that I know for a fact that I dropped a mark on. My teacher said that it was the 'Interface'.

    Wait, I wrote "SATA Cable" for that question. Do you think I would get the mark or not?

    You might not get it for writing "cable" after it
