    Currently doing Digital Technology for A-Level struggling with learning it without getting bored. My current teacher is only giving us information through booklets which doesn't really give much depth. Plus there's only last year's paper to go on. Any help would be appreciated

    @Bit6 OMG babe i feel your pain. Are you in AS or A2? Last year i did AS and it was awful. i learnt the factfiles of that ccea gave us of by heart inside out. when the results came out our class were informed that 90% of the fact file of the information was not in enough detail and the markers were told not to accept anything that wasnt on the mark scheme. our DT teacher marks the papers and he said there was a massive outrage at the meetings about it. one of the ways in the factfiles that was told how to do binary was not accepted. there was also a 5 mark question on the paper (cant remember what it was) that not one person in northern ireland got full marks on. your not alone and if it makes you feel better only one person in my class passed. i got a D overall which i was dissapointed with on results day but when he told us about ccea i was actually quite happy about it.
    *TIP* if ya want to pass buy the BCS GLOSSARY OF COMPUTING BOOK. it will cost you but if you want to pass you , you will probs need it lol.
    hope this help you

    I didnt use the glossary i just used fact files that our school developed from ICT papers and the specimen paper. Everyone in my class passed AS with a majority of them being A’s
    Since everyone did terribly in the exam it was scaled up highly so that not even half the paper right was full marks.
    Your notes must have just been terrible to fail, but to revise and prepare better just learn off the keyfacts, make notes and diagrams and whatever you need to. Its boring as hell but really easy to learn.
