as its only the first few years the new spec is out its pretty hard to predict whats going to be on it. what i am doing is revising the "computers" and the "communications and the internet" topic inside out on the contents page of the purple Pearson Edexcel revision guide

Very strange exam. Very bait-y on the side of Edexcel (for the ASCII question you had to convert the denary number to binary which I stupidly missed). I felt the graph question was also slightly strangely worded/drawn

Tbh I dont know about you guys but my teacher is INCREDIBLY incompetent. We've tried to get him fired for two years now with no luck, It's clear there's a shortage of computer science teachers. My class all taught ourselves everything and half the spec we didn't even go through in class.

I'm so curious about those grade boundaries ahhh

Didn’t realise that the box thing was meant to be cache until after the exam and like inclusion of technology in school isn’t great either

What did you guys put for the question about unsigned integers?

And the question of what code review is?

And why network policies should be reviewed?

And why network policies should be reviewed?
Unsigned integers: I put that it can show more positive numbers, since there is 8 bits designated for the number instead of 7 with signed integers & there is no need for it to be signed, since you can't have a negative number of cars in a car park.

Code review: I talked about looking for logic errors & bad coding practices.

Network policies: To know what you can & can't do when connected to the network, so that you don't accidentally break the guidelines. (this was one of the questions that I wasn't sure about)
