i'm used to studying for maths/further maths. i just do past papers, go over the topics i got wrong, and do more questions, then more past papers, and i've improved to a A-A* grade.

but for computer science i just don't know how to study and feel like i've exhausted all the ways. i've memorized almost all my flashcards, and watched videos on topics i got wrong in papers ( from craigndave ) yet i'm still getting literally Cs and Ds in past papers. i'm not used to revising theory and dont know what else i can do, so i'm wondering if anyone has any tips or resources. thanks!

Have you done past papers for computer science to practice exam technique because exam mark schemes are very specific on the wording you use and making sure you list all the key points for the allocated marks.
