    I found it hard at first too until I went through the steps in my book and it made sense. It would be really helpful if you have a worked solution to a question or an explanation of the steps. :-)

    Computer science is a very well known subject. It is, however, very difficult although if you put your mind to it, focus and actually have a passion or interest to learn it, then go for it.

    I did BTEC IT at GCSE as my school didn't have GCSE IT, and I also done BTEC L3 IT in college. I'm going to uni to study computer science but it's mainly because I really enjoy it and have a passion for it.

    Please, think it through and don't end up wasting your time.

    Echo00 I don't get my results back until wednesday but I didn't think it went too badly. I kinda faked my way through it tho as I had it after 4 hours of German exams.... Luckily I knew most of the stuff that came up, and my teacher kinda hinted at who had done badly or made stupid mistakes and I wasn't one of them so should be fine
