I'm completely helpless at Computer Science, my teacher isn't the best of the best. He has spent far too long on coursework and we only just recently started to learn what we needed on the specification for the GCSE Computer Science exam.

However, the computer science course is really long and so I may not get through all the essentials. Could someone link some useful websites that may help with revision? and ideas to go about with the revision will be greatly appreciated!

Are you doing OCR? If so, all our lessons are taught with powerpoints, and they're a really good resource. If you're doing OCR, I can send them to you.

Week 0 CS50 (Harvard University intro to computer science)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFenJJtAEzE - This is way beyond GCSE but it's so well delivered it's worth a watch. Even though it's beyond GCSE level it's still an intro lecture so aimed at people with no prior knowledge

The CS50 video library is also worth a look to expand upon any specific topics - https://www.youtube.com/user/cs50tv/videos

Crash Course Computer Science
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...NuOLXtM2Ep_C7a - Keeps things quite simple at first but ramps up once it gets into later videos

BBC Bitesize Computer Science
http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/z34k7ty - Quite a lot to get through and basically covers the entire syllabus

Electrical4u Binary, Hexadecimal and Octal guides
https://www.electrical4u.com/binary-...ry-conversion/

Wikipedia datatypes
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primitive_data_type - You will need to know the basic datatypes and what kind of information they can store

Computer science is the sort of subject you need to teach yourself above all else. So go through the course and pursue each part of it to its logical conclusion, even if this sits outside the syllabus.

Could you please send those power points?
