Hey,

There two exams,.

the first one contains questions like pseudo code, trace tables, logic gates, basically the "technical" side.

The second exam is about ethical issues and hardware, so you could get like "What is the fetch-execute cycle?" or "How does a magnetic hard disk work?", ethical questions can be like "Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of online health service".

I hope this helps.

It depends on the exam board. For AQA they are right but I presume that for OCR he is wrong. It is a matter of perception.
