Was anyone else affected by the withdrawal of the Assessment materials when OCR withdrew the tasks for GCSE Computing?

I'm doing my computing GCSE this year, but I'm doing Edexcel. There is less practical and more theory

I regret not doing Computing, it seems kind of fun.

I was very jealous of the people doing Computing. Their exams were so easy they did an OCR theory exam. Guess what it was about?
DNS Servers, it was basically ICT. I know all of this stuff. It's the coding that I don't like.

The theory is too easy, I agree, but the practical is very hard. I am doing python, such a difficult and useless program to work with

Exactly, I originally wanted ICT. But it doesn't fit in with my Timetable so I had the choice of Computing or some other subject. I choose Resistant Materials in the end. I had little time to decide. I had done computing in KS3 basic Scratch. It was sorta in the middle. The teacher that does the timetable was like "Well, whats the difference between ICT and Computing?", I was like lots of stuff. I hate coding and scripting. I have some knownledge on it, because I do a little bit of LUA scripting. The thing that put me off from Computing was the teacher. He's like "You need at least a 6a". I'm not a 6a so it put me off. All of a sudden, people who I know aren't 6a are choosing Computing :P

hahahaha wow, well my teacher told me that the test is going to be different depending on which program you use, so they'll be like code related stuff inside the paper, meaning that I'm screwed lol

The OCR Theory paper is extremely easy, Simple DNS, Database theory, Hardware, CPU, etc.

The A452 / A453 Controlled Assessments are quite a challenge however and at first glance look quite simple, however they are always a lot harder. Saying this, the Controlled Assessment doesn't require 20 hours worth of work, I did my A453 in about 5, and got 42/45 marks resulting in an A*


If anyone would like a look at some material from the course, whether it be work of my own regarding the theory, example response to the ca, just let me know.

Yeah, I'm currently doing the course right now doing the A452 course. I wanted to know how you set your coursework out as it can get tedious organising information correctly.

I would like to know how you set out your A452 and A453 please. I don't feel like I'm doing it right
