I think I’m going to fail paper 1 on Monday. Our class got the code on April as we took forever to finish the NEA now I’m realising I’m going to get up to a C overall. 😭

For Paper 2 I know but paper 1 I’m doomed

Does anyone know last minutes tips?
Thanks for reading this

I'm doing OCR but I can offer some tips. I have unfortunately left revision really late and am having to revise the entire of paper 1 for Monday during the weekend. Basically, what I do is, cover the theory first before attempting any past paper questions. I usually just copy from the textbook and verbally recite all the key points I have revised on that page, this helps it to stick in my head. Then, for efficiency, instead of actually writing down answers to past paper questions, I just visualise the points in my head and compare those with the mark scheme. I find this method to be effective, but most importantly, quick. As for any areas that I struggled with, I will revise them again (but in a more concise and time effective manner). Hopefully, you find this strategy useful

Thank you for your strategy. I think this will be must useful to earn 20-25 marks for the first section.

Thanks 👍😀

anyone doing WJEC?
WJEC England? GL
Your paper is apparently hard as hell, in comparison to the other exam boards, lol.
Unless your Wales ofc. Problem is wales and England papers get combined for the grade boundaries, and welsh papers are far easier, resulting in higher grade boundaries.

Oh. Then your paper is already easy and you can laugh your way through it, apparently.

I learned most of the Theory. But for coding, I’m going through the Wiki answers and trying to learn them.

Same, I'm doing OCR too and have left revision late, mainly because I've had to focus on other subjects and procrastinated a little. I might try your visualisation of the answers technique, alongside practising writing some of the 10-mark questions. Thanks for the advice.
