Yeah the databases are probably the easiest marks on the paper, just make sure you know how to write queries in the grid etc and know what records/fields are. The error checking part usually has some really blatantly obvious errors, ensure not to pick up on syntax errors as they never are. Learning pseudocode syntax is also a good idea.

Although, seeing what we got in paper 1, God knows what we will get tomorrow

if you don't do section A then you're going to lose so many marks

Do you know how to code? If so you could do the pre release in like 1 hour since it is really easy and then get full marks for section A

Pretty sure that's ok, as long as the shape of the box is ok
