That Blue Square Thing

AQA Computer Science GCSE

May 2019: this area of the site is being built just now. I’m making progress but there are areas where there is no content yet. That will get added over the next 6 months or so.

Networks - Revision

This unit appears on both exam papers, but mainly on Paper 2.

On paper 1 the marks seem to just be for some use of boolean logic - in particular Truth Tables, although there could be some use of logic gates. Nothing else really fits with paper 1.

This means that most of the unit gets assessed on Paper 2 which is where the knowledge based questions come in. So you have to learn definitions and be able to explain how things work. There will be some marks in a logic gate question to work out as well.
