AQA Computer Science GCSEWatch
I just wanted to know how easy/hard, interesting/boring and how useful it was. Thanks
I think the theory paper was alright as it was just memorising some facts and you essentially just apply these in the test. However some people may find the intensity of these facts a bit too much so I would recommend only take it if you are willing to spend effort on it and/or if you find it easy. This is the same for any subject. I think the intensity of the facts wasn't bad, I found subjects like geography much worse as it was so content heavy and I didn't have a genuine interest learning about rocks and rivers so I regret taking it. The programming paper can be a bit tricky because this is where you really apply your knowledge and any type of program can come up but if you know all the types and principles of programs then I think you'll be fine.
If you have any more questions on computer science, any other gcse subject or the gcse process/experience, feel free to PM me or you can ask me on here. I'm a year 11 so I don't have much to do now exams are cancelled and would be happy to provide my knowledge somewhere else.
