    Have youfully got to grips with the PM I am still abit confused around the wholeconcept haha.
    I believe so, it is quite different from the AS - nothing really needs fixing this year, thus it is quite difficult to guess the questions they could ask. If you need anything explaining, just ask and I will try my best to help out.

    Some questions that my class has come up with:
    1)Constraints for number of animals placed (when option two is selected)
    2)When a fox dies and you try to inspect it the program doesnt print anything so, maybe print something?
    3) Display number of rabbits born that period
    4) Validation for menu options for the coordinate input (it crashes if nothing is enter)
    5)Display a message when a cell with no fox is selected for fox inspection...Adding a loop too.

    Has the preliminary material already been released and given to teachers and students? I haven't received anything from my teacher so far

    If anyone has it in Python and wouldn't mind sending it to me I'd be extremely grateful

    Sorry for the late reply, I'm afraid I don't have the code in Python, but I have linked all the Preliminary Material that I received (and the code in VB.NET if that is any help).

    Thanks for letting me know this, if the material has been released to teachers and students then should I ask my teacher to provide it?

    (or if anyone reading this has the material in Python, please send me a direct message)

    Never fully understood classes so this is a bit of a nightmare. We're just going through and completing different questions that we think might come up.

    how is everyone progressing with the preparation? me and my class are struggling a lot, because our teacher "forgot" to teach us about classes, inheritance and everything and she is using zigzag education's questions/lesson plans for us, but she can't solve the questions herself and all their answers are wrong. she is also completely useless. anyone else seen those questions?

    Actually quite well for me and my class, although it's about the same with my teacher (who can't solve the questions) but we do it individually and come together with all our solved code. Haven't heard of zigzag education, is this something new? All we're doing is following the questions on wikibooks and some that our teacher gives but doesn't disclose the source for some reason.
