    Ok firstly did anyone else sit this paper or was it just us (My school).
    Secondly what did people think of it? Personally I thought it was one of the worst papers I have EVER seen across all subjects.

    I haven't seen any other threads on this paper and I don't know if this is in the correct place but yeh ...

    So anyway Did you/your school sit the paper, what did you think of the paper, how well do you think you have done?

    I agree, the theory questions were alright except for the trace table which seemed more difficult than any I've done before. The last 2 programming questions caught everyone at my school out. Hoping for low boundaries as I missed out the last question :'(

    I THINK I did ok on the programming questions but overall I did absolutely Shocking, The trace table really screwed my timings up and it didnt help that I programmed the wrong algorithm and then had to go bad and re-do it, Didn't bother doing ANY testing for the programming except for the first one and I didn't link any of them either

    From what I've heard a lot of people have found this a lot harder than previous papers. Also this is new spec so I'm really hopeful for low grade boundaries but I don't think it'll drop below 70% . I found the theory questions alright but the apart from the pseudocode and first programming question I really struggled. Also what the f*** do Aardvarks have to do with computing? Are we all gonna just let that slide :'D

    Hahaha I've only done python up to GCSE level and find it a lot easier. The exam I took today was in C# but the questions completely screwed me over
