    OCR Computer Science A Level
    Resource Guide

    This guide has resource information for the OCR Computer Science A Level H046, H446 (from 2015).

    There are scarce resources for the new OCR Computer Science A Level and some are difficult to find if you have not been directed by your teacher. Therefore I have compiled a list of useful resources for anyone currently studying this course.


    Textbooks

    Hodder Education
    This textbook is written by the same people who write the OCR examinations. However, I have found multiple errors in this book and the content is often too brief. I would still recommend taking a look at this resource as it is likely to give some indication as to what will be assessed in the examination.

    PG Online
    This textbook has much better content and is more accurate throughout. If you are looking for a good technical revision resource, I'd recommend this textbook highly.


    Examination Papers

    Computer Science - H046, H446 (from 2015)
    There is one past paper and some specimen material papers.

    Computing - H047, H447
    Past papers. Many parts of the specification are the same or very similar to the OCR A Level Computer Science specification.


    Revision

    Craig 'n' Dave
    Youtube revision videos mapped to the OCR Computer Science specification.


    I hope you find this useful and please share any resources you have found as I am also studying the course.

    What do you think the grade boundaries will be? As it's a new spec normally it's quite low?

    I don't know anything for tomorrow paper and I feel like I am going to do bad. I am really scared and nervous and I have like the rest of the day to revise.

    My programming and psuedocode skills are really bad and now I am panicking on what to do. I am really confused on what to revise in like 8 hours.

    I didn't even think Psuedo code was going to come up in paper 1??!! I've just been revising unit 1.

    So what you're saying is that the Hodder Education textbook is too brief? I am studying this A level by myself at home and I am using the Hodder Education book, what should I do? Should I stop using this book and use the PG Online book?
