I do computer science gcse, i chose it because i love coding. i am really good at python and other coding languages.
gcse cs WAS: 40% computational thinking paper
40% computer system, networks, uses, security,architecture,memory storage paper.
20% controlled assessment (python coding)
NOW IT IS: 50% for both papers each,(we do the controlled assessment but its gives no marks.

in school, we are doing the computer system paper. and there's so much to learn. even when i learn it, the questions are so hard, they are written in a way that i did not get what information they want. its really stressing me out. are there anyways to revise better and deconstruct the question

next year we are doing the second paper. i know i will do that well as its maths based

Try different revision booklets on the same exam board as they might be better explained to help you understand the paper better

I just use flash cards - Computer Science is generally pretty easy for most people in my school

just get to grips with learning and understanding as much of the theory as you can- have you tried getting an exam practice workbook?
