So my future computing teacher advised that we try to learn parts of python before we start A level computing, so any OCR students know what extent i need to know to help me in the course and what parts are the crucial parts.

Thanks in advance

That's odd, i guess i assumed it because he said we would DEFINITELY use python but it could still be possible due to different exam boards

A level computer science student here, learning python really helps with the learning the fundamentals of computer programming and is definitely worth doing as it will help you a lot if you don't have any prior experience. When I was starting the course we were set a specific task to complete over the summer however if this isn't the case you could try completing the tasks on a free website such as codeacademy.

Hi Mate,

Any chance you could send me units 15, 6 and 14, I really need the distinctions on them. Obviously I wont be plagiarising it because I can't and my limit is 10%.


Please, if you can as I need help.


Cheers,

Jonathan
