Students are welcome to spend time in Y16 on any day after school (by prior arrangement) to work on either of their controlled assessments or work on past paper questions / cover any material they feel unhappy with.
Students should be spending time revising the course material from their books/textbooks and regularly accessing the past paper questions and mark schemes on the OCR website(s).
Students can get all past paper material from www.ocr.org.uk/computing
There are revision websites available with a whole range of different resources:
www.codeacademy.com (mostly helpful for A453)
www.mfraser.org (registration is required and tasks about 24 hours, but it’s free)
