    Just resat F452 this afternoon, feeling pretty confident beforehand however some of the questions completely threw me over and I found it near impossible to make up some bs in attempt for a couple of marks.

    The questions like define a "variable" and the types of testing during software development were quite straight forward and hopefully got some easy marks

    Was a bit confused by what they asked from the first question with the grid and what data they actually wanted inside it. (thought the context with the lorry and the temperatures was dreadful)

    BUT for the last question (programming is not my strongest point), I was staring at the algorithm for about 15 minutes and I just couldn't get my head around it after trying every possible calculation with the example they gave so I reluctantly left it blank.

    Be interested to know how everyone else who sat the exam found it, leave your answers so we can compare

    Hey, I did this paper the other day. Was hoping someone was gonna make an unofficial mark scheme because I thought it was really hard. Can you remember what the algorithm question was and I'll try to remember my answer?
