A-level Computing/AQA/Problem Solving, Programming, Data Representation and Practical Exercise/Skeleton code/2011 Exam
2011 Exam[edit | edit source]
The exam questions are very hard to predict and this site is by no means going to give you everything you need for the questions you'll sit. The most important thing you should do is learn how to program, and learn how to program well!
Things to Learn[edit | edit source]
Reading the specification it appears that you will have to learn the following:
The Exam[edit | edit source]
The exam is split into 4 sections that must be completed on a computer.
Section A[edit | edit source]
<30 minutes> Theory Questions based on the material you have covered for unit 1. For an overview of what this might include see the specification and this wikibook
Section B[edit | edit source]
<20 minutes> Programming solutions to short problems, not based on the preliminary material or skeleton code
Section C[edit | edit source]
<20 minutes> Theory questions about the preliminary material and skeleton code
Section D[edit | edit source]
<50 minutes> Program solutions based around the preliminary code. The guidance below doesn't pretend to offer the actual questions that will be set in the exam, but by doing them you should hopefully get a better grasp of the code and be able to answer any questions thrown at you during the exam.
