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 .
Yeah we got told by our teachers that it would be ok to use a programming language for such a question and we just had to understand, roughly, what other design notations meant and how they worked.

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.
Na the teacher did a really good job of teaching the class and I got an A in the prelim without revision, also thanks.

When you had to draw navigation did anyone draw it like the hierarchical question in the 2018 paper? Or would that not count like navigation?

Yes, I drew a hierarchical structure; every page (besides the basketball page) links back to the homepage (reversible arrows).

Btw guys, see for the question where you had to read the structure diagram; one of the shapes didn't have a line directing it to a "No" answer for what happens if the tree size was small; I think i got 50 as my total answer for both trees, what did you guys get?

Yeah I got down 50.00 aswell, 23 for the cherry tree and 18x1.5 = 27 for the pear tree.

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.
The standard algorithms are fairly important for higher, mostly for the assignment but you will need to know them for the exam too.

The standard algorithms we done this year in higher were:
1. Input Validation
2. Finding Maximum
3. Finding Minimum
4. Count Occurrences
5. Linear search
