What isn't sticking? The programming aspect or the theory aspect? Theory can be daunting

The programming section we get alot of help on some im fine with that, its the theory. Some bits stick like the algorthims and the maths parts. The rest is like a blur, nothing makes sense when revising

I can see your pain. The unfortunate thing is, I think knowledge of the majority of the theory content is simply down to memory. You can't really think intuitively about something such as "port forwarding", you have to remember what phrases the examiner is looking for. The only things that I can suggest are doing all old spec past papers and read the examiner's reports as they give a lot of insight into typical mistakes students make answering theory questions.

The upside is the theory at A2 becomes much more easier (imo)!

See the problem with that is, is that this course has changed, meaning there are no past papets, ajd since the spec has changed the old past papers arent useful
