GCSE Computer Science Question Booklet

GCSE Computer Science Question Booklet

(0)
This could be used as a revision guide for year 11, assessment points throughout the year, or a weekly homework booklet for the duration of the course. 64 page booklet with contents page, sets of exam style questions for each unit (1.1 to 2.6, in order) for OCR GCSE Computer Science. Created in a style so that students can spend around 10 minutes on a particular unit of questions then mark their own work using the internet/revision guides for help. Each unit has a revise/re-read/expert box at the end so students can log how they feel for each unit and revise those that are priority to them. Throughout are small, inspirational quotes to help motivate students. Absolutely brilliant resources, particularly for those students who “don’t know how to revise” or “don’t know what to revise” or “don’t know what to do to revise”. This has been great for those “hard to engage” students. Relatively cheap to print (cost me £1.08 per booklet to print - this will depend on your own school’s printing costs).
