    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?
    Last years' paper was lovely. Really good stuff. Opcodes, logic gates (I think), nothing at all difficult. It was a really good paper.

    I know I said previously thought the test seemed hard because of grade boundaries but comparing to other past papers, it felt the easiest for me! I was pleasantly surprised!

    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!
    Ethan
    I've got my exam in just over a week and I was wondering if you had any tips for revision, are mindmaps good? Also can you explain the networks topic (specifically network hardware and stuff like IP and MAC addresses)

    Do you know where you can find last years paper and mark scheme? I can only find past papers from 2014

    Guys where can I start revision. I've only got max. 3 days to do revision for Computing and I haven't even started yet. Pls help Although take into account that I know some bits of the course, such as conversions between binary and hexadecimal, cache memory, computer systems, CPU, a bit about memory, secondary storage, user interface, security, etc. The one thing I really don't get is the 6 mark algorithm questions.

    Guys, Do we need to know about Static RAM and Dynamic RAM.
    It isn;t on the spec but it is in the official OCR GCSE computing book?
    Any ideas?

    Has anybody got any practice algorithm design questions? Because if we can't do the question then that is basically a whole grade dropped :/

    I am not being funny, but what more could you need help with? people have posted information regarding the whole specification. There's actually so many useful documents and links on here. If you take the time to read this forum you'll see that everything you need is here.

    I feel like that has come up before, I'm thinking either: Sequence/Iteration etc. or perhaps Represention of Data?
