GCSE Computer Science 9-1 Exam Prep

GCSE Computer Science 9-1 Exam Prep

In response to added emphasis on the Component 1 & Component 2 exams, following the NEA decision, I have re-structured my approach in lessons running up to the exams. Attached are two structured lessons which target specific 'question' styles at the beginning of the lessons, with revision of theory (based on OCR guidance - separate powerpoint theory on OCR website) before attempting a) for component 1, a QWC extended question or b) for component b, a writing algorithm questions. Over the coming weeks, as I develop the lessons to focus on areas of weakness shown in mock exams, I will upload further lessons in the hopes they can prepare your students for assessment as well.
