I see this is the first exam starting tommorow.

If anyone is doing this and needs any last minute help, I would be glad to help as I am doing Advanced Higher.

Good Luck everyone

Hey Yeah I'm doing General/Credit Computing tomorrow, It's one of my strongest subjects and I think I'll do ok, but from experience is there any general advice to give?

I've been doing past papers all day as well, anything else you know of to help study?

Any questions you are not sure of I would be delighted to clarify for you. Heard from others it was very hard. I'm not looking forward to my Advanced Higher Computing exam in 4 weeks.

Suppose that's good to hear that others found it hard, General was easy but Credit was quite hard, hopefully still did ok but. Teacher was quite shocked when we told her after...

I found it pretty hard, but I think I got most of it, enough for a 1 anyway (hopefully)

If someone wants to post the paper, I'll do it so you can compare answers. Might as well make my procrastination helpful for someone :p:

Don't think anyone will have, it was one of the write on ones...

I didn't find it too bad, but I'm getting nervous now!

Don't worry, nearly everyone in our class failed the prelim but everyone passed the real exams.

I remember when i done computing, i finished the general after just 15/20 minutes, and the credit had time to spare.. As long as you checked over and answered each question you'll get that 1

I finished the credit one in about half an hour and by 2 everyone was done, so we were told just to go.

We got out of general about twenty minutes early, but had to stay till the end of credit

I think I've managed to get a 1 ... *touches wood*

The only thing I messed up was getting text wrap and word wrap the wrong way round! I was lucky with the unorthodox stuff as I'd gone through a quick study session at lunch!

Yes I don't need Advanced Higher for my conditions for uni even though I have applied to do a computing course... I got 63/80 for coursework which I think is a decent mark. Prelim was so hard but hoping I can pass the exam. It's those programming questions which are so hard. What did you get Advanced Higher? Are you doing computing at uni?

I got an A but I already had the unconditional offers.
What optional unit are you doing?

And yes, I'm studying Computing at uni, exams coming up soon but first year exams are easier than Advanced Higher IMO.
