    Hey Everyone, thought I'd make a new thread for help with this years SQA Higher Computing Exam and Assignment.

    Is it just me, or has anyone else just started the assignment with their school?

    To me thats pretty late to start the assignment. When I did my Higher, we started it in November/ December time. February/ March was to tidy up our reports etc. I know the new N5 assignment has been released not too long ago, however as far as I know, the Higher hasn't changed.

    How are you guys feeling about the exam? Everyone in my school thought last year’s was exceptionally hard compared to previous papers, hopefully our exam will be not too bad.

    The "how to pass higher computing" textbook is very useful. Contains almost everything you need to know, as well as exam hint and tips. Additionaly, "scholar" has some very good notes on every topic and provides online revision sessions which you can attend or playback.

    An index is a point in an array so the first index would be 0 and a counter is the thing used in a FOR loop to iterate through the array, so say the counter = 3 that means that if you look at array(counter), your looking at the 4th element(since array indexs start at 0) hope that made sense
