GCSE Computer Science Paper 1 and 2 Mock Exam Bundle in style of AQA New Spec Grade 9 - 1 8520

This bundle contains paper 1 and paper 2 of my painstakingly created custom exam papers for GCSE Computer Science. Both come with an exam board level mark scheme to ensure accurate assessment. Designed in the style and proportions of the AQA 8520 Spec but also suitable for OCR and other boards.

GCSE Computer Science Paper 2 Mock Exam in style of AQA New Spec Grade 9 - 1 8520

GCSE Computer Science Paper 2 Mock Exam in style of AQA New Spec Grade 9 - 1 8520

This is a full mock/practice paper 2 for the new specification GCSE Computer Science. It is based on the AQA 8520 style of exams and heavily influenced by the AQA specimen and includes a full exam board level mark scheme. It would also be suitable for assessing OCR and other exam boards. Currently, there are very few full practices papers online so I decided to make this one. A huge amount of time was invested to make sure it covers the full specification of the new GCSE, so you can actually assess what is necessary. It uses the same proportions of topics and assessment points at the AQA specimen paper so you can accurately attain what your students know or need to work on. Paper 1 is also available. Hope it helps! Toby Watkins
