Computer Science Exam Top Tips

Break the question down. if it's asking you to explain the advantages and disadvantages, that's 3 marks a piece, so 3 advantages AND 3 disadvantages needed 

Always start by stating the obvious and build from there 

Don't over think it, if it looks simple, it probably is simple! 

Unless you are 100% sure that your first answer is wrong, LEAVE it alone, don't change it! 

If you are given a table of data or a graph then it's because you need to use it! 

READ the information at the start of the questions, often there's a clue in it... 

Use Computer Science vocabulary, not "stuff", "things" etc. 

Make a flowchart rather than write Pseudocode 

Never leave a question blank

Use a Highlighter

Don't forget a BLACK pen....
