    But do we need to know how to draw flowcharts if we can write pseudocode?

    So there is not going to be question just stating to draw flowcharts and not pseudocode?

    no, there will be questions on it. my cs teacher told me that, theyll give you instructions like

    a random umber needs to be generates and sorted
    user enters guess
    if user enters guess incorrectly
    user will be told higher or lower
    number of guesses then increased by one
    user will guess again
    if user enters guess correct
    program displays they are correct
    the program displays the nuber of guesses it took them.



    write an algorithm for this.


    and you then write a seducode or draw a flowchart.

    personally im ******** my pants for tom , but to keep on safe side i would draw a flowchart instead of seudocode just because its easier.

    It will be a question and you will most likely either be able to do pseudocode or flowcharts

    Hi, I did the GCSE last year, I'm not too sure on the rest. But in typically every case for GCSE, they will give you the choice to either do your own pseudocode, or a flowchart.

    The general shapes you want, oval = start/end
    Parallelogram = Input/Output
    Wide Diamond = if case, or a decision of any kind
    Rectangle = a Process
    For doing if cases or any sorts of decisions, you wanna be doing arrows consistently, showing every possible stage
    Make sure you're communicating the process clearly.
