    For my courseworks, I got 43/45 and 42/45 which are both a*s. What would I need in my exam to get an a* or an a?

    Something reasonably high but not massively high.

    Aim for the top, but you'll only need around 60-ish out of 80 to get an A.

    I got 41/45 for both my courseworks (to be honest, I thought this was a bit harsh) and I'm so scared they'll get marked down if the results need lowering from moderation because the boundary is 40.5! Do you mind me asking how you guys are revising for the theory and what resources you're using? I feel quite unprepared from my lessons because we focused heavily on practical skills and I missed a number of lessons, and I know the boundaries are usually very high for the CS theory papers. Sorry to jump on the thread, I've been struggling to find other people doing OCR and the paper is my biggest worry at the moment. Thank you

    Yeah my teacher gave us booklets for each topic but there's just too many of them to revise from efficiently :/ it's good to know that my school wasn't the only one disproportionately focusing on practical work, though :P
