Ok so my final Computer Science exam is this summer and it time to start revising... The issue at hand is this. There are only 2 past papers, there are no textbooks/revision guides for my exam board (although I have bought some OCR stuff because there is some relevant stuff in their spec) and my teacher, although being very lovely, is an ICT teacher not a computer science teacher so has not been a massive help over the last two years and as a result my notes are poor. I'm feeling very overwhelmed and more than a little screwed. Has anyone got any advice or been in a similar situation to this???

NB: My exam board is WJEC

Hi, I don't actually take computing science and I am doing national 5's not GCSEs (I live in Scotland) but I use the BBC bitesize website a lot and it's really good for studying/revising, depending on the subjects they have test you can take and revision papers.

Here is the GCSE computing science one http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/z34k7ty

Hope this helps!

Look at the specification and research topics separately on, say, BBC Bitesize, perhaps?

I'd be surprised if there's no revision guides/textbooks out there.
