    I think I got 70/80 in practical 1, 30/80 in practical 2 (cannot do HTML) so how many do you think I need to get in the theory for the B?

    Where did you find the specimen papers? well what my teacher said that they are trying to make the papers a little harder-.- but the grade boundaries should be quite nice for theory.... but nonetheless I'm a bit worried for it ahaha

    I hope it's easy like the other papers seem to be, although if we get questions like this specimen paper for 2016 then I will fail because we haven't learnt most things on it

    Yeah... I agree with you, like for the excel part so super easy.... there wasn't any nested ifs or anything like that!! However, if the theory is hard then the grade boundaries would be pretty low?

    Thankyou!!! Yeah don't worry, fingers crossed we won't get questions like that either because we've never been taught quite a lot of that stuff... like what the heck is a RFID chip:') :eek:
