    I want to go to uni for CS but my current school doesn't do gcse, I would like a feel of the tasks.
    It's a bit odd that they don't do CS considering it's a part of the national curriculum now, a sixth form/college wouldn't let you do A Level Computing with a GCSE in ICT because they are so different I'm presuming.
    I won't put the current CA task on here, also if I'm correct in saying you're in Year 9 the new specs only have 20% coursework so you have 80% theory.

    Have a look at some of the new spec's sample materials, here's OCR (who I use, but on the current spec) http://ocr.org.uk/qualifications/gcs...j276-from-2016 /, here's AQA: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/ict-a...r-science-8520 , and here's Edexcel: http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...ence-2016.html
Is the Big Bang theory correct?
