How did you find the exam? I did the component 1 exam earlier today and thought it could have been a lot worse.

i found it hard, to be honest i'm not good at taking exams. I had a complete mind blank. Hopefully it will go well, but I'm not too sure. I need to pick up marks in component 2.

I've finally found people who did the Eduqas exam - I've only been able to see other exam boards talking it about it today. There were a couple of questions I wasn't so sure about on the exam this morning but in general I found it almost worryingly simple. It's got me dreading what comp 2 is going to be like...

At the end of the day the questions are only coming from the spec so if you know all the content theres nothing to worry about, you dont need 100% on both to get an A*

What did you get for the Big O questions parts a and b? I got O(n^2) for part a and O(n) for part b which was about the growth of memory. Im not sure if i got it right.

I spoke to you yesterday, I put O(n^2) for a and b. Part b was a guess so you are probably right.

Also I don’t think the grade boundaries will be different to last year

Data protection act
Computer misuse act
Design and patents act(it kinda links to protecting data if you see intellectual property as data)
Code of conduct for programmers
And then a paragraph on how to protect your data including: encryption, firewalls, VPN, anti virus, cold storage of data, access levels

Computer misuse act
A bit about code of conduct
Encryption
Backup and recovery
Cloud storage
