    I do, but no we haven't done any theory, the teacher just sits there and he's utterly useless.. How did you possibly get those grades?
    Most people in my class had gotten lower than a pass,and I for one ended up getting an E in the mock exam, how did you?

    If you are doing the A level course I pretty much used http://www.ocrcomputing.org.uk/overview.html and past papers for revision, although the second year consists mainly of course-work.
    If you are doing the GCSE, I would also recommend doing all of the past papers and getting used to the style of questions, its really not that difficult.. they'll ask for
    • Definitions, make sure you have all those memorized
    • Drawing out network topologies (this may sound hard but it really isn't)
    • For these definitions make sure you know advantages and disadvantages, they often ask you to explain these in questions
    • Working with binary and hexadecimal - make sure you know how to add, subtract and convert between one another
    • Writing pseudo code, again, this is easy

    Teach-ICT is pretty damn good, got 88% on my mock by revising from there and BBC Bitesize.
