here's a useful website for all the skeleton code information and possible questions on it if you haven't seen it already: https://en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/A-le...n_program/2022

just general computer sciencey questions about the code such as:
State the datatype used for __Locks
State how many difficulty cards are generated when the game is run
State the name of a method in the Breakthrough class that uses exception handling
the link I just sent has some of them

How much time should be allocated to each section given the number of marks they have?

I struggle with time management and tend to spend too long on one section.

Also, does anyone have the answers to the Wikibooks section C questions

definitely agree! saving the game could be the 13 marker because you would need to edit quite a few different places as well as creating the actual saving method. i think something about consecutive tool types could come up. have u done the zigzag questions? the mulligan and peek ones are good practice.

it says on the paper! from memory it suggests 70min for section d not sure about the rest. i usually speed through first three sections so i have as much time as possible for section d.

Yeah I've done the zigzag ones over the past few days - that's why i reckon the saving one could be the 13 marker too. Other than that it could also be something like creating a new card cause of the complexity of creating a new class with 2 constructors and having overridde methods

Is there anywhere that has predicted questions for section A? I understand B would be very hard to predict and wikibooks has predictions for C and D. Wondering why I can't find predicted questions for A since the EAD has been out a while
