    Ok so you're performing well overall, allocate time to CS, and find specification-targeted resources.
    If you haven't already, invest in the appropriate revision guide, along side logical operations and computational thinking, memory is a key element that will assist you in the exams. So revise the content according to the most effective strategy, for CS I always find mind-maps useful (per topic).
    Also do attempt past papers, especially the 6,12 markers as they tend to be similar like Maths & Science.

    Here are some generic links:

    I am doing cie. I can handle theory but its just the coding that I can't seem to get a grasp on. I have mastered the basics but when it comes to answering questions in an exam, I am not able to replicate what the examiner wants.

    You should probably learn a programming language in your own time and become reasonably proficient in it, JavaScript, C# or python would be good ones to start with.

    It's impossible to get what the examiner's want, everyone has its own coding style, the mark schemes just show one option. As far as you reach the solution efficiently you get all marks. Make sure you practice a lot with the preliminary material most of the marks are there
