There doesn't seem to be a thread yet for the exam, so I created one

Anyone have any predictions/notes/tips they wish to share they can do so here.

Phishing and viruses haven't ever come up on the exam, so since it is the last year of the spec it is possible that it might come up? Maybe as an 8 extended writing question, although it probably won't tbh

I have a feeling that breadth first traversal is going to come up this year becuase it came up last year, AQA have a habit of repeating poorly answered questions for example the 2013 and 2014 networks questions were literally the same qustion with the same diagram except they changed a few numbers around

Do you mean COMP4? My teacher marked it at 71/75, but he said that it might get moderated down.

My teacher marked 75/75. Praying that it doesn't get marked down.

How are you feeling about COMP3?

After doing having to resist COMP1 and COMP2 seems they just followed previous tests and use the same questions, would be surprised if this came up. Feel like the computing exam board is the only one going easy on our year unlike those ******* biology exam writers!

74/75 from my tutor. This is the last year of this spec so hopefully they just throw in old questions (alternatively they might have a reserve of weird questions they haven't used and decide this is their last chance! But let's be positive )

I find subnet masking pretty tricky too. Check out these videos, they kind of explain how it works and all that.

Principle behind subnet masking:

Also, here are some resources I stumbled upon for COMP3 that you guys may find useful. I suppose they're decent for last minute revision.

Credit to those that made these, obviously.

Well, it may not be that bad. Considering that this is the last year of this specification, AQA might give us a nice paper...

Yeh a paper full of finite state machines and floating point would be welcome lol. I just hope there isn't loads of pseudo code dry running. Can never seem to get it right.

I know right? Those are the nicest questions.
And ugh, me too. There is definitely going to be at least one question with it, let's just hope it's not more than that ._.

How many exams do you have left after COMP3?
