Aqua computer science alevelWatch
This is a question for those in y13 getting A’s or even those who finished the course - how did you revise? Both my teachers aren’t great and I have to tech myself the whole syllabus but idk where to start or what resources to use- any helpful tips ?
I have already received my A-Level results this August and was meant to also be doing computer science (well I did it in year 12 and at start of year 13 was forced to drop it cuz school could not find a replacement teacher).
Anyways, I did OCR and from what I remember AQA was a bit more on the theoretical and problem solving side and would explore a bit more into concepts of computer science whereas OCR was legit a memory game, the mark scheme was often so specific that even if your answer was on the right lines, you would not be awarded full marks because you missed out a key word.
Anyways what I recommend using is Isaac Computer science, craig n dave (although I found their vids very boring) and just the course textbook (for us, we had the massive textbook from PG Online) but I also used these notes written by a student that I found online.
I also recommend when it comes to past papers, just go through one without using notes, mark it and record where you dropped marks and use that as the initial basis on what you need to go over then branch out from there
