    I hope it is a hard paper so the grade boundaries are lower. For some reason, I find these papers easier

    I think it separates data from the applications. And a relational database is a database connected to another database using primary/foreign keys

    Is that all a DBMS does?

    A DBMS allows you to control the data in your database. SO it allows you to create forms, queries, reports, tables.
    A relational database is one which is linked through a primary key through individual tables.

    Assemblers translate assembly code into machine code. Compilers and interpreters translate high level code into machine code.

    What are forms; reports; queries and tables? (In terms of a DBMS)

    machine code is the binary code that the computer actually uses (so it is like 00001001 10001000 etc instead of actual words)
    assembly language is a low-level language that uses mnemonics like ADD and stuff but it's still really hard to use (I think it's what you use in LMC, but I didn't do that assessment so idk)
    assemblers convert assembly language into machine code
    compilers and interpreters are two types of translators. They translate high-level code into machine code. A compiler converts all of the code before the code is run, but an interpreter converts one line of code, runs it and then moves on to the next one. So from that you can see that each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

    hope that helps a bit?

    yeah definitely - I couldn't even understand the algorithm question on the 2015 paper whilst looking at the mark scheme :rofl:

    What do you have to know about sound and images because all I understand is colour depth and sampling depth and how analog data needs to turn into digital data for the computer to process it.
