    Wow, literally no one (on TSR) - if it helps I'm doing A2 first time, spec is different but content is pretty similar. Since you have done A2 before what tips do you have for the exam?

    I would say one tip is to do as many practice papers possible but i guess that wont help for you...
    If your study guide has summary questions etc trying doing all of them as they would be good practice and they would be the closest to exam questions.
    I also suggest reading the book over and over again as there could be things you may of missed out by accident or forgotten

    Here is a link for specimen paper and stuff. I don't know much about the new spec so you'll have to figure out if which paper is right one.

    Your teacher may also have some resources that could be useful so maybe ask them too.

    Thanks. I actually am currently using old past papers because lots of the new content is similar to the old content - just a few extra added things to the new spec and some things taken out from the old spec.

    :bl: :bl: (i just learnt how to do this lmao)

    ikr i literally had too many notes and so many of them are unnecessary
    so i found a link to this Cambridge cs student and his cs notes, yesterday

    I have been using them and combining my own notes with it.
    Spent the whole day doing that, hopefully going to get started on doing all the past papers.

    after that it is simply just reading and reading again!!!

    here is this wonderful link

    I use that website too! Last year i made notes from the whole A2 nelson thornes book which ended up being so useless! I only make notes from past papers I do. I got a bunch of questions you can do from old past paper questions from the old spec (old old) to cover ours. Keep in mind some questions may not be for our spec but most are and a lot of the questions are repeated so when you go to the next document you will see a lot of the same stuff so you can go through it pretty quick. I also have more stuff (i'm uploading this all to drive). You should also go on the aqa website as they have some documents on tree traversals and hashing which the book doesn't cover so well.

    oh yes, i want those old old questions, sounds very useful
    yeah!! the specification is soo vague "be familiar with Tree", i got those documents printed, just not to miss out! hella annoying it wasn't mentioned in the specification

    my gmail is [email protected]
    thanks
