How did you guys find it?

I thought it was pretty easy, I left out the design question about the fairground one; nothing what I was expecting maybe because I was under pressure or something but I just couldn't get my head around how to code it. Other than that it was fine.

For the current meter reading question what did you put for line 18 in the code?

Hello, I’m after the exams, and I have to agree - exam was quite easy. However since my teachers was not teaching then I was stuck with end-user and functional requirements and I am dissapointed

WHILE currentReading < previousReading

currentReading = InputBox("Error, enter a value what is not less than the previous reading.")

END WHILE

I put down
UNTIL currentMeter > previousMeter as it said that the current meter needs to be higher

No idea, I'm just pissed at how badly worded some of the questions were. I'm probably wrong but oh well.

Agreed that’s what I hate about computing - the vague wordings. Overall the paper was fair.

Yeah, don't get me wrong it was a very fair paper, just don't see why they purposely write some questions out to try and catch you out.

I strongly agree on this one, I was confused on this one cause it was a conditional loop and then showing the output maybe?. Idk.

Sorry for double post but, what did everybody get for design technique for fairground game thing?. I wrote out steps 1 and 2 then done 3 and 4 using structure diagram

It's like I know how to structure very high quality code, just stupid way of putting it. I hate the SQA with a passion.

we finished learning about the course around February and my teacher kept ranting on about us learning our standard algorithms and that if we did anything over the April holiday, it was to learn the standard algorithms, my only question is how important are standard algorithms at higher? Also that nat 5 computing exam was not hard apart from that design technique question at the end of the paper. only economics left and my exams are done.

Yes
I used python and I basically copied steps 1 and 2 that were shown above the answer box and added an if loop within the conditional loop to end game if score >= 50 and added another if loop out of conditional loop to display prize message if score was == 50.

Oh that’s nice, I was learning Python too for computing however in my school we had to visual basic, therefore I was quite stuck but nice .

Oh wow that’s quite bad - I had a teacher who wasn’t teaching. I don’t know how it will be in higher but on BBC bitesize standard algorithms for higher are: find min, max (self-explanatory), linear search (Idk what is that), count occurences (Also idk what is that) and input validation.
