New Specification specimen paper ,

Computer Science Tutor Videos ,

Coursework-wise and exam-wise, I got A* for both, and i was predicted a B. The coursework was difficult and I'm sorry for not having any tips in relation to that, as I've forgotten everything since I've started AS levels.

Nonetheless, I hope you all good in your exams. Finally, Don't start revision late
