    Hiya everyone,

    I took this exam last year and I'm willing to help anyone that needs it! Simply quote me or PM me and I'll see what I can do! :yep:

    Keep in mind I won't correct coursework code and I won't simply tell you answers because that would be cheating. I can give you pointers and exam information, especially what to revise! :woo:

    Let me know!

    Hi can I have some revision tips regarding the exam. Also those annoying 5-6 mark questions on programming standards and protocols are my weakness. Do U have any tips for that topic?

    I managed to grab an A* in the Mock, so I guess I can help.
    First steps are to get the revision guide 100% - Read through some of the topics and make note some of the things you have no idea about and need to revise.
    The next step is either to look at your specification for the exam board or this: http://www.teach-ict.com/gcse_comput...51_topics.html

    If you focus on all the questions you didn't do as well on, you should be fine!

    Oh, also - If you aren't a complete nerd like me and read through the whole revision guide cover to cover for fun, I'd advise making flash cards and testing yourself on topics everyday!

    Revise the questions that came up last year - atleast the style.
    Lossy and Lossless compression usually comes up
    Input Output devices
    Types of storage
    CPU (FE Cycle etc)
    Coding Standards (appropriate variable names etc)
    Laws surrounding code (open source etc)

    Go over everything and you'll be fine!

    The paper really isn't too bad, you'll definitely get a B if you use the textbook and do ALL of the past papers! (Probably an A if you really push it!)

    Sadly I won't be able to give those to you :sad: — send your teacher an email, they'll definitely have them.

    Ah nice, I got A* on both, but I'd be surprised if they aren't moderated down. Hopefully this years paper will be decent. What were they difficult topics that came up when you sat it, if you can remember?
