Catch-up sessions are still on every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school in E12 for both Computing and ICT students. Any student who has not finished their controlled assessment work should be attending at least one session per week.

Revision books for Computing students can be brought through school on a pre pay system, ordered through myself. The book is My Revision Notes OCR Computing GCSE by Hodder Education discounted from £8.99 to £7.01. Alternatively they can be ordered on Amazon (ISBN 978-1444193848) for £7.99 plus p&p.

There are two revision books for GCSE ICT – Both Pearson Revise Edexcel GCSE – Revision workbook (ISBN 978-1-4469-0389-6) £4.69 and Revision Guide (ISBN 978-1-4469-0387-2) £3.99.

As revision has now started it would be advantageous for students to have the revision books to work from at home.
