    Same here! Have you considered engineering? I'm stilll split between engineering and Computer Science tbh! Yeah like hell who needs to know about goddamn DATABASES.
    Not really thought about engineering to be fair. God damned databases and networks!
    I'm considering a course at Sheffield which is physics with computer science, rather than just comp science, so that seems quite cool (If I bloody pass either of them).

    How are you revising for AS computer science? Im doing my GCSE's but I'm also doing AS CS and I don't understand anything!! Do you have any advice? Thank you so much
    For the more practical side with binary, karnaugh maps etc. just doing practice questions I find on the internet. For everything else I made notes based on the specification and I'm reading through them. I should probably do some practice papers too.

    bro firstly, take a deep breath it may seem like a lot but it's mostly common sense and if you are into technology then it should be interesting to you:

    I suggest binge watching his videos:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxSW...X-eslHud2Lyycd

    Do it at speed 2 atleast 2 times before exam day.
    Watch the playlist twice and it'll guarantee the grade you want.
    Those videos are good but wouldn't rely on them. For my mocks i just watched those videos and made notes, but i actually realised there is a lot the videos don't cover so watch them but don't just rely on them.

    Na he covers the whole spec but the mark scheme for OCR is so precise and sometimes they ask questions that are logical and not part of the spec (For instance that traffic light system one that was 6 marks can't remember the yr). The vids help a lot but looking at the mark scheme and memorising the small details will make a huge difference.

    No, everything he says is ON the specification and i have the official OCR computing Book for revision and everything said is ON the book FROM the spec.

    Print out the specification from the OCR website then go through it, that's what I pretty much do. Colour code each section so you know your weaknesses and strengths of each topic.

    Ah right, okay. You don't need to worry, especially with the coursework to boost your grade. Last year I didn't do as well as I should've in the exam, but I still managed an A overall! It will be alright, just go over your notes - read them aloud. I have the AS OCR Comp sci exam on monday, and that's what I'm doing to prepare. Also using the specification really helps.
    Same, any predictions what may come up in the first one, any tips...
