    I wanted to ask what way would be best suited to revise for OCR ICT A2 year, baring in mind that it is the last exam for this subject, i didnt do as good as I expected despite having studies hard for it for AS year because I got a D so i really want to make the most of it by resitting and doing well for this years exam too but i am unsure on what way is best to revise for OCR as my other subjects are rather essay based which i preferably understand better,

    You need a decent set of notes or revision book.

    Then you need to practice/ replicate exams by ding past papers or workbooks. See what Amazon has available. Mark your work and use mark schemes to id where you lose marks and then try again till you improve.

    This one?

    Talk to your teacher. Its one of three things.

    1. You dont understand the material- get new revision books , watch videos etc until you understand.
    2. You cant remember the relevant bits for the exam- have god revision notes.
    3. You cnat apply what you know- exam technique.

    It sounds more like 1 to start with.
