    I haven't done any proper revision but I'm not too worried because a lot of the stuff is just common sense with a bit of basic knowledge thrown in.

    i know the basic facts! CPT2 is harder than CPT1!

    Although, if there is some how do computers save unemployment etc. ill be happy!

    What are we talking about here? Computer or ICT? I've got AQA ICT on Thursday, and I'll be studying all day tomorrow, but I'm not really worried, since it's really common sense most of it... like how can computers help in the medical profession? Even if you haven't studied the relevant chapter, you can still probably come up with staff yourself...

    Computing A-Level is a joke - 2 coursework mods and the exams are piss easy.

    As an A-level student who has an A from 5 modules so far, take it easy clear your head and do the exam slowly and methodically and you wont go wrong.

    Btw the best revision for CPT is literally the last hour before the exams when u have a Q & A session with ur mates. it does help to read thru some textbooks especially the good Edexcel one.


    peace

    Lets hope it all goes smoothly then eh!

    Why can't we have a Q&A session on hear..... post a question, next person can answer it and then give out the next question in his post!

    Ill start...

    Virus Checker

    Utility Programs - Search etc

    Well, my school aren't going to be offering computing A level next year.... but seeing as no-one else has answered, a compiler converts your code into machine code which can then be run straight off, but interpreter must interpret the code every time the program is run.

    Right?

    A new copy of a sequentially organised master file is made whenever records are added

    A program is written to add a single record to this master file. List the processing steps for this program that generate an amended copy of the master file.

    I think.....

    You would have real-time processing so that the record that are being altered can immediately be updated (Probably used in something like an ATM machine). The creation of a transaction file would help with the adding of a record because it would be seperate from the indexed sequential file thus it would not be processed in real-time because this would be inappropriate. This would mean that a method such as batch processing would be used (In the case of the ATM machine this would be the bank updating its customer details all at once rather than wasting processing time by doing it in real-time). This would be done during slack time in because the customer details would not need entering (using transaction file) and the details are generally consistent data types among each field.

    Am I anywhere close, feel free to grade me.
