    D1 as a subject is beautiful (I've been using its subject matter in my programs for years now), but I took the OCR JAN10 exam, which was bloody dreadful. There was a page-long question (literally one page of nothing but text) on "computers" with 4 numbers in 2 memory banks or something, which was outdated by between two and three decades yet took up nearly half of the marks. The simplex question was also convoluted beyond measure and to answer it without error you would have had to be a robot or some kind of simplex fanatic.

    The syllabus needs bringing up-to-date: Despite knowing the practicalities of D1 inside out I scored 61%, my second-worst mark in any exam ever (worst was C4; 55% is quite a good mark when you take an exam drunk )

    Having said that, most of the syllabus not "related to computing", like Dijkstra's algorithm (why don't they teach A*?),minimum spanning trees, matrix multiplication (or is that FP1?) and inequalities are damn useful, even more so than C4 with its vectors and calculus, in the real world of computing (EDIT: And physics... You'll do a lot of matLAB, which is very numerically-oriented)- i.e. not the one that the mathematicians think still exists.
    I'd just like to say reading that was amazing. I'm terrible with computers and I swear guys who know their stuff are almost better than guys with guitars. I'm such a geek groupie

    Hey,

    can I ask what grades you got for GCSE and AS-level, as well as what you're predicted for A2?

    Thanks
