Has anybody seen an unofficial mark scheme? I think I did pretty okay, but I'm worried because I'm taking it for a-level next year, and if I've messed it up then I have no clue what I could take instead..I had so much spare time, like all Comp Sci exams, so I counted up what I thought I got, and I'd say about 70%. I know I messed up that 9 marker though..

I put virus, ransomware and trojan, because I think they had to directly affect the computers and I'm not sure DoS does

DoS would get you some marks, I'm not sure about malware or phishing because they're not forms of attacks. I think they were looking for passive, active, insider, brute force and dos.

I don't think they had to be forms of attacks, just things that could be a threat to the computers, like worms etc

I've talked about this in the official discussion thread, but I definitely think I went in expecting it to be rock hard, but it turned out actually alright. The question at the very end was the only one I feel I messed up on really, I missed out the bank account question because I had a mind blank at the time and totally forgot that it was HTTPS, and I remembered as soon as I left the hall. I'm absolutely kicking myself because it was such a basic question.

do u know the question about the villagers.Did anyone mention that becuase it was a small island that the introduction of the internet and mobile phones will distinguish the difference between rich and poor as only the rich can afford it.This could lead to bullying.
I feel as if i waffled a bit

I'd say that's more of a cultural effect but you will still be fine because it asks to talk about the inhabitants.

I should have out ransomware :// I put viruses can infiltrate easier too, which I think is right, but I couldn't think of any more threats directly because of the computer being connected in a network.. So I put brute force and phishing..

How many marks do think you got? I probably scored around 55-65/80

this is an example of the digital divide, so it will be marked as correct.
