    Long story short my school decided to make our whole year (including people who already struggled with ICT) take GCSE computing after never studying it before.

    I'm really struggling, I'm meant to be predicted an A however I am struggling to even get Ds in this subject. I struggle with theory especially. Does anyone know any good revision guides/websites/resources I can use? Thanks.

    which exam board are you using? It's quite odd that they made your whole year do Computing, at my school they made everyone either do ICT,Computing or ECDL(practical, basically just using MS Office)

    If you're in yr10 and struggling with theory, you're pretty lucky, with the new GCSE specs theory is now 80% compared to 40% (on OCR anyway)

    I'm in Year 10 on OCR as well, my teacher uses this website: http://www.teach-ict.com/gcse_computing.html a lot to help us, I find it quite useful, with OCR it is only one exam worth 40% compared to two with the new spec, how did you find the CA ?
