    Ok, I'm in Year 9 atm and next year and I am going to be taking my Computer Science GCSE exam. (So technically I'm taking it a year early.) I'm not home schooled, but I will be taught everything I need to know outside of school. For those taking it/having taken it, is it all a test at the end or is there a coursework part to it. My school are happy to let me take it but I don't know roughly what to prepare/study for in terms of coursework. Not sure if this makes sense.

    What was involved in the exams this year? I think I'm doing the Aqa board (If that's a thing.) , but I'm just looking for a rough idea.

    So are you doing the whole course including the practical side or just theory?

    So you'll be doing the same paper as I, if you want to know what is in the paper and what it looks like, here are some links to past papers:
