    I'm sooo going to fail this exam.

    Scraped an A at AS (164/200) and got 67/70 for the CW (which will most likely be moderated down).

    This exam is so hard compared to AS, i literally just revised the words on the specification last year and got an A but with this it is so much more trickier. There's also nothing online, no useful revision guides or anything.

    We did use the ZigZag predicted papers in class and they were pretty good.
    A question regarding Saas and Paas will most definitely come up so remember to look up what they are!

    I don't even think this is a subject you can predict questions for... but I do think they have a habit of rewording questions that were answered badly the year before?

    On a lighter note, my teacher thinks legislations and regulations might be a big one.

    As everyone on here seems to be concerned about there not being many INFO 3 revision guides about I thought I may as well post this.

    I have a 50 page word document Revision Guide. I'm working my way through it now in preparation for the exam and it seems relatively useful in terms of content.

    So if anyone wants it I'll be happy to email it to you, just PM me your email addresses and I'll send it over!

    Well the ones we should know are the Data Protection Act, Computer Misuse Act, Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, Health and Safety Act, Freedom of Information Act, Regulations of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) and the WEEE Directive (2007).

    I haven't looked at the syllabus to see if we need to learn all of these but my teacher said these were the main ones. If it's a generic legislations and the effect it has on an organisation's procedures essay question then the explanation of the first 5 with expansion would do.
