Right guys, Good luck for this afternoon, but once you've sat it let us know how you all got on! Which questions were hellish? hehe.

I'm nervous already!!! I just hope if I find it damn hard, others did too.

I done the new course (My OU was Computer Networking), I found some questions difficult, some REALLY difficult (the algorithm for Finding Maximum), most were OK.

I thot the exam was pretty straightforward.
The only thing I didnt really learn was the coding, so i was making u pseudo code for the alogorithm an the other 1. They were only worth a few marks tho.
I did Multimedia for the optional unit.

I did the old course. It wasn't too bad, although I am awful at computing so probably just scraped a C
