    I put upgrade to a CPU with more cores and a higher clockspeed.

    To upgrade the CPU cache (done by getting a better CPU)

    To upgrade the HDD to a higher rpm and capacity.

    To invest in a new GPU with more VRAM (even though in reality vram isn't everything)

    I also explained each point and ik u only needed 3 but I wanted to be 100% sure.
    Could increasing clock speed count, do you think? I realise it's a bit of a long shot, I'm not even sure if it classes as an improvement per se, but I was desperate...

    Idk but it does seem to be a trend. I've had to teach myself all the theory mostly via past papers because we had a grand total of... zero worthwhile theory lessons.

    So although I can get full marks on most of the past papers having learnt the mark scheme, our actual exam's a different matter... T_T

    I think the correct answer was adding the chapters to the variable and using the = to change it. Eg. NumberofPages = NumberofPages + NumberofChapters
    That's what I got, because it wanted the number of chapters to be added to the total, and the total was stored in NumberofChapters

    Should count if you mention upgrading the cpu and it will increase performance since my fetching, decoding and executing can be done per cycle. But I'm not sure on the markscheme 😅 OCR has awful markschenes ;-;
