What does the Advance Information mean? It says
"Where appropriate we have listed both the topic and content that will be assessed. If there is no content listed then questions may come from any of the content in that overall topic area of the specification."
- That basically means "What we've specified will definitely come up, everything else might come up", right? So we need to know everything?

Pretty much but the content they’ve said will be on there sort of allows you to focus revision a bit more. My teacher assumes that the ethics part will come up as like a 6 marker. It could be more marks but the structure is the same.

I HATED IT...I hated every moment of that disgusting exam. I was so confident with Paper 1 and thought I was doing well at GCSE's until today where computer science completely ruined it for me. Left me broken after the exam because I don't even know if I'm going to the grade I want anymore.

I feel like the advanced information for the gcse was accurate and definitely linked up to a question in the exam. There is a few bits of it that weren’t directly in a question but needs to be revised to help answer the question around that topic if that makes sense. Our advanced information said for one of the things to explain what… and then describe why…. And it was the describe statement that was relevant but knowing what it was would definitely help. I might of just made that even more confusing but I hope it goes well for you!!! I’m going to be starting the OCR A level course next year.

I really thought the SQL would be harder to be honest but it was a gift of a question imo

Yeah seeing as some of them were just identify the primary or foreign key it was an easier question.
