I like the binary calculation questions, but the tough questions are generally all other questions haha, I find it difficult to remember what the examiner wants to see in our answers for full marks, and the fact that there are questions that are so different to on previous papers! How about you?

I've done so many past papers that I've started to remember what I've done wrong and that there are certain patterns between the January and June papers of an exam season. I find the binary questions easy also. I've found the fetch execution cycle hard to remember though.

Have you already done all the past papers on offer from OCR? Unfortunately there aren't very many

Definitions are crucial as you don't wanna throw away marks. Binary questions will always come up it just depends on how they are asked. Operating systems always seem to come up and usually they ask for purposes e.g to handle communication with the use of protocols. Have a go at a few past papers because you will notice the pattern. You should definitely do two papers from the same year and you should notice a pattern with similar questions.

I was wondering if there was actually a thread for this!

I am also sitting this paper, so if anyone would like any areas clearing up then I'm more than happy to help. My advice would be;
- Ensure you know how to do binary
- Know the definitions of all busses / registers
- Know the component parts of an expert system and make sure you know lots about problem definition.

Also, for those of you wondering how you can remember which order the systems developent life cycle occurs in just think:

Programs for individuals are developed independently, even in May.
(Prob def, feasibility study, info collec, analysis, design, implementation, evaluation, installation, maintenance.)

For those more able candidates have a go at the May 09 paper, it's bloody hard - 66 for an A!

The only way you can get them is if you're registered on the exam network.

I have a physical copy only I'm afriad. It wasn't anything special, a mediocre exam by any stretch of the imagination; an average 75 for an A.

If you could scan it I'm sure many people would be very grateful including myself. I would like to look at as many past papers as possible and if Jananuary and Junes are usually similar this could be a great resource.

I don't have a scanner, unfortunately and it would take far too long to take a picture of the paper and its MS.
