definitely data representation (some bin to hex or hex to bin conversion). Surely something about errors and what they are. Something about network topologies (maybe pros/cons) and something about SDLC ofc and maybe something about how optical or magnetic or solid state media store data becuase that is always asked. Im not sure tho.

Its very hard to predict anything for Computer Science because there have only been two exam sessions. Your best bet: revise everything. Good luck, btw

I think there might be something on servers and networks. There will definitely be data representation and definitely SQL as well. I think there might be quite a lot on computer hardware as well. As previously said though, there have only been two exam sessions so it is probably best to revise everything! Good luck.

It's Software Developement Life Cycle. All the stuff like waterfall model, spiral model, etc.

Yes I'm doing OCR, it was literally half marks for an A last year, think it's because most of the teachers are bad :P ...

Definitely. Got 67/80 in the mock and learnt 60% of the syllabus from revision

Yes. Last year of this spec and magnetic media and solid state storage have never come up.

Anything you don't want to come up, will 100% come up. Revise for the worst then bask in the fact you will do better that everybody else.

Just finished the exam; It was good. The only thing that was hard was the breadth first search tree.

How did everyone else find it?

Did you do Edexcel? I found it so nice! Much easier than previous years Although I think the grade boundaries would be really high :/ For the breadth first search tree, I think you just had to go across each row from left to right until you found 30 xx
