Fortuanely for me I've no other exams til then so I can hopefully get plenty of revision done in the 12 days til the exam, so I'm feeling pretty confident about it.

Really Section 1 of the exam is where you can pick up a lot of easy marks. It's just standard re-call of information - each one worth justt a few marks.
(e.g. A program can be said to be maintainable, readable and reliable Describe what is meant by these 3 terms.)
Again, if anybody needs any help just post away!

Past papers are definately the best way to revise for it, since they often repeat questions, but there are only two new-higher past papers!

Yeah, I kinda disagree with that. A topology is a topology, and if you can justify it you should get the marks. For a test we did once a friend of mine wrote tree topology as one of the answers when it was perfectly acceptable, yet the teacher claimed that it "does not exist"

My hand is going to be sore that night...
My teachers just told me to keep doing past papers as the questions every year are similar, let's pray it's not too hard

It used to be:
Section 1: 10-15 short(ish) questions which were fairly easy.
Section 2: 6 questions out of which you answered 4. 2 were compulsory, and then you had a choice.
Section 3: AI, Multimedia etc (with a choice in the questions)
It now is(as far as I am aware):
Section 1: the same.
Section 2: harder/longer questions than section 1, but you now answer them all (no choice)
Section 3: AI, multimedia etc (no choice in questions)
If you have a look at
Then it has an example paper of the format which you will face, and also explains the paper to you.

Paricularly all the section 1 questions. If you look at Section 1 of the SQP - I would expect anyone who sat the old higher to be able to answer it all bar around 2 marks.
Q1, 6, 8, 10 from the SQP are fairly "typical" exam questions that will pop up somewhere nearly every year. Q12 in Section 2 is also nearly identical to a question from the old higher. Q14 likewise. As is most of Q15 and 16.
