    Hello,

    So my year group is the second year group so far to do the Computer Science GCSE. I'm in year 11 now.

    How are you finding it? Do you like it? I like it but my teacher is so bad (spends all his teaching time behind his laptop >.>). Do you want to do Computer Science in the future?

    Share your thoughts!

    P.S. Anyone know any good resources to revise or just go over something you don't understand?

    I am, i'm in Year 11 at the moment and i'm finding it pretty good. The coursework was quite tedious and I still have to do a few things on it this year. I want to do something in computing/ICT in the future so i'll definiety continue it.

    What exam board are you using? Do you use python?

    Year 10 was alright I guess, although the highest grade in our year was a C I think. In some of it it can be challenging whilst some parts aren't. I really liked it although sometimes I had to retry like 30 times to make a program function the way I want it lol (so frustrating!)

    I especially hate when I forget to add something so I have to indent EVERYTHING.

    Also my teacher didn't even teach properly last year, he kept telling us to find a document, complete it then we do nothing because he's behind his laptop doing something else >

    He barely helps it's so annoying.

    I am in Year 11 and I am doing Computing GCSE. I like it but my class is near enough anarchy which makes it quite difficult to work. I am not finding it too difficult, apart from all the technical issues that App Inventor has which turn my life into hell.

    Nope not at all. I actually chose ICT but my teacher told me that we have to do Computer Science instead.

    Ahh OCR, damn...
    If I were in that situation just pay attention in class, ask if you don't understand, and practise ocr papers (my goodness some of the questions are too ambitious).
