Well, theres usually a question on Input/Output devices - so I'd 100% revise that.

Last Year
Input Output Devices
Questions on Networks and the configurations (bus, star etc) and Terminators came up.
OpCode definition
Good practice (variable names appropriate etc)
Of the shelf vs Custom
Binary translation
Pseudocode

Most likely going to be I/O , Binary translation, Network Topologies, Binary, Pseudocode and Laws.

I'd revise most things from that list above ^

Are you including devices for the disabled in I/O devices? If not, I would revise them too.

What would these include? Also, is there any way you could explain the difference between solid state storage media and magnetic storage media to me? Thanks in advance!

Like the data protection act and copyright laws for example

Devices for the disabled = things like braille keyboards, foot mice.

Solid state is essentially just a bunch of transistors, whereas magnetic storage has moving parts which read data from a strip of magnetic tape. Solid state is more robust as it will not stop working when moved (unlike magnetic), it is silent, produces less heat when working, and is also better for the battery life of whatever computer is using it.

Ss is often used in tablets; that came up in 2014.
