Revision is the key to a good grade in Computer Science so make sure you invest time in this. You should aim to spend at least 2 hours of revision per week and ensure you have a suitable revision schedule to help you focus. You should also attend all workshops where you will learn important revision techniques and skills.

You can use the Collins OCR GCSE Revision and Practice book given to you at the start of the year, further CGP revision guides and workbooks are also available to buy from the school website. Alternatively, you can use your lesson notes and resources in OneNote to help you revise.
