I want to make some form of revision source for my ICT exams [GCSE], however in lessons we haven't really went over what to actually revise? Any suggestions would be great.

If it's like the one I did there'll be pre-release material - just research everything surrounding that.

The ICT exam is so easy I don't think you need to revise.. I haven't revised one bit for ict and I haven't been below an A*. It's just logic, they also give you the answers beforehand.

For my two ICT exams I'm doing ICT in Today's World and ICT in Context (OCR). Which one's are you doing?For me, I love making flashcards. They're the best way to revise anything for me. Another suggestion could be to make mind maps connecting ideas and topics. Also, consider buying the CGP ICT revision guide. It's extremely useful for some of the topics, but it's not specific to an exam board so be careful if what you're revising is in the syllabus! This leads me to my next point. PRINT OUT THE SPECIFICATION! I cannot stress this enough. I've done this and been ticking my way through each fact I need to know for the exam. Finally, use TeachICT (just google it). It's very helpful with the topics also. If you tell me which topics you're doing for OCR I will link you the specification. Good luck with exams, I'm also doing them this year .

If you're doing Edexcel then you basically don't need to revise at all, it's all common sense. I got full marks on it w/o revising 2 years ago.

I'm doing mine on Edexcel aswell so I would suggest just looking through the Revision Book for Edexcel and doing some practice questions. I found it really helpful and got an A* in my mock. To be honest, I think it's a lot of common sense as said before and it's not hard to get the top grades. How comes you have 2 exams on different boards? Did you take an extra ICT course?
