    I would just say make your own notes, for me the exam papers are only useful for an indication on where you're at. Make your own notes and test yourself on them then rewrite those notes again. I would only suggest past papers after you've done all your notes and are prepared cause then you can practice your exam technique. GL

    I don't know if you mean G061 as I have that on thursday, but I think last minute revision should be on those discussion questions, If you can do well on it then you'll probably jump up a grade boundary!

    Not saying that I'm looking forward to the exam, but I've revised a lot, hopefully it will pay off.

    An impact is something that results immediately after said event. A consequence are the results that occur as time progresses due to the impact.

    My teacher said to answer them in a "null hypothesis" style, making one or two valid arguments for the hypothesis, then one or two valid arguments against the hypothesis. I've found that some questions though are very hard to answer like this... other than that, I don't know if there's a better style.

    How did we all find this one? I'm hoping for low grade boundaries! Really couldn't understand the 'compare knowledge and information' question!

    Was a tough paper tbh. That questions you had to talk about pre existing knowledge and the information had to be enough for a task to be done effectively and there shouldn't be too much to confuse the user

    I found it easy, on the whole... but then again this is OCR we're talking about; the king of lulling students into false senses of security!

    The only question I had to BS myself through was the DFD, I might've gained one or two marks by luck. The last essay question was also a bit of a motivation killer. It was tricky to use the "null hypothesis" skeleton on it, and I found myself putting it out of context for the most part, so I think I may've dropped > half marks on it. Overall though I thought it was a fair paper.

    If anyone did draw the DFD could they upload a replica of what they put, if possible?
