    Would it be possible for someone in the community to create a mock mark scheme? I really want one!

    I'll start off, I guess.


    Q1 (a) What is the purpose of a protocol? A set of rules that enable the communication between devices.

    (b) What is the high-speed internet infrastructure? I said 'Connecting Backbone' or it could be 'Tier 1 ISP'. This needs reviewing.

    (c) What is the network topology? Ring

    Q2 (a) Networks - (forgot the answers - it was a tickbox).

    (b) The purpose of encryption in networks - I said to verify the sender or it can protect the data.

    (c) Cartesian Coordinates (Turtles) - (2,3)

    Q2 (a) Legislations - forgot the answers....

    Well, you got an A* in the coursework which means if you got a solid/high A then you can get an A*...just.

    Very hard subject to create a mock mark scheme in my opinion! Best thing is to just discuss lol and search on the internet and textbooks whether your answers are correct

    A trace table is when you track what the varibles are at diffrent lines in the code, the last set of questions was just machine code for a while loop,

    And the html was using the <li> tag, so it would be something like...

    <Li>
    <P1> first word <\p1>
    <P1> second word <\p1>
    </Li>

    I think you get a mark for the 'li' tag, which makes bullet points, one for doing the paragraph taggs and the last mark for compleation.

    I think i counted my marks up to be like 84/90, i think i messed up on the binary search one, had no clue, just split it down the middle

    I also said that the files are organised. I didn't really know what to say to be honest.

    Haha lool, I would laugh if you got that right.

    I flopped this question - I think I got 1 out of 3 marks.
    I think there wasent that much to say about this question, you could have said about user areas, placing more impotant files closer to the center of the disk for faster r/w speeds but that dosent allow for solid state drives, the only other thing i could think is about the folder systems and how the os branches data into a folder /file system
