Thank you.You are literally a lifesaver !!

is the slack link not supposed to be working?

Hey Nicole!
That seems weird. It’s working for us. Can you get in touch with us via the Contact form? The support team will help you out.

Thanks

There is a mistake in the theory notes on page 8 (Processor Fundamentals: Fetch-Execute Cycle), Decode stage – indirect addressing should be: Load the contents of the address in the copy and retrieve data. The given info is the description of Indexed addressing. Hope its fixed for those who need it and love the notes.

Please contact us via typeform for this issue, that way, we can have it validated and logged.

Thanks !

Amazing notes! Please do upload A2 Notes as well. I’m begging you!

BEST NOTES

Thanks!

Thank you so much for the notes of AS Computer Science. It helped a lot for my exam as I revised with your notes just before my exams. Would be great to have A2 Computer Notes as well as I checked it not updated yet. Hoping that it will be soon just before our A2 exams on May/June. Thank you for your kind cooperation.

where can I find the answers to the worksheet?

There is an error in the diffrences given in dram vs sram section pg 6. In the theory notes it is stated that sram consumes more power which is not true. I hope this mistake is fixed asap and saves someone from writting this in their exams….

Hi ! Som
Please contact us via typeform so this can be verified and logged.

Thanks !

nice work there. but code are in pyton.. any chance for Visual Basic????

The Author learned Python for his exam. If there is anybody interested in contributing to add the VB version, then that will be great!

thank you so much for these notes and they are very useful.I am looking forward for a2 notes for computer science

Is it possible to ace through the Advanced Level Computer Science without previously taking IGCSE Computer Science?
I’d dearly appreciate it if someone could answer this as soon as possible. It doesn’t have to be a firm and confident answer necessarily it but I’d be glad if that’s possible. As for others currently doing AS or A-Levels or those who have already completed it, what do you personally think?

Hi Mushfiq,
I’d love to answer you question — but you’ll get more opinions and feedback when you join the community. You not only will get one answer but many answers from current students, past students and professors.
I hope to see you there!

Right, thank you very much!
How do I join the community though? It’s my first time around here, so please take care of me.

Not a problem, in this window, there should be a notification that says “Join the ZNotes community”
If you click on that — you should just enter in you details and you are in!
If that isn’t there, then you can go to the Home page and they’ll be a post where it talks about the community — there is a short cut link for to access the community login.
Tell me if you need anything else or just email us if you have any trouble.

Alright, thanks! I’ve decided to try out Computer Science for myself after going through lengthy lectures and discussions with my parents and my teachers. I’ll be mainly self-teaching myself for about 3-4 month with my teacher’s guidance and then start regular classes once I’m back to my country.
I’ll check out the community though, because I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for providing wonderful short and concise notes for my IGCSE subjects especially for Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and History. I hope to see A2 notes for Computer Science soon and can’t wait for this site to be more well-recognized and appreciated. I have already spread word of this site to NYC classmates and on their behalf I would like to thank you again, so thank you very much and keep up the great work!

Abhijit Vempati

That is great to hear! Thank you so much!
I hope to see you at the community!

Thank you very much for the notes. They are really helpful. Would really appreciate it if you uploaded the A2 notes sooner if possible. Have exams in October.

You are welcome!
No plans for A2 as of now, but follow us for more so you’ll be the first to know when they’ll be coming!

Is this enough for cie exam to obtain worthy grades ?

Provided you have a good concrete knowledge of the syllabus topics and you are inside out with your programming language and the pre-release material — then yes. But use this as a revision tool and NOT A LEARNING GUIDE.

im dying for the a2 notes

Was really helpful… amazing work guys… looking forward for A2 notes
Final exams are approaching, so it would be game changing to get the A2 level notes [p3 & p4]

yes it wouldd please upload A2 notess

Thank you! I am self studying for exams and these notes helped me a lot. Really appreciate the effort you put in in-order to provide us with these notes.

Thanks for the kind words!

Can Libre Office Base be used to satisfy the database requirements for the syllabus? I ask as the school I work for is about to engage our Year 12’s in this course and we want to remain using Linux operating systems. We are working on SQL but are not sure if the examination will cover the language.

Any assistance is appreciated.

As far as I know, Libre Office has almost all the functions as MS Office, so you should be fine

I am genuinely putting all my trust in your notes and memorizing them by heart because I don’t really understand computer science that much and I was forced to take it, do you think I am doing the right thing?

Nope, this is your future. Dont take it if it isnt required.
(unless of course you are forced to take it for the career path, which if you dont understand much, i dont know why you are taking it)

need computer science p3 and p4 urgent

Were you taught AS level computer science by Daniel Nowell?

Yo bro;
You said your friend was going to write A2 notes.
would you please upload it ,won’t you?
I have my exams tomorrow
It would be great and helpful
Thank you.

can you tell me what does “buffer” mean . I don’t understand it i looked in other websites
it is in page 7

a buffer is like a virtual queue.It takes request one at a time.

not enough for an As student

Like Zubair said in the How to Study section, you should be using these notes as a Revision tool. We haven’t stated this as LEARNING Material. Of course, maybe it may not be enough to some of our readers, but that is a clear indication that there are some pot holes in what they’ve learned and they just need to learn those concepts again. So if you are in that case, try reading and going over your AS content again, including learning your programming language and then read these notes.

bloody Thankless people…..

do you have notes for paper 3

Flipping amazing!!! Thank you!!!!!

hahaha yeah, it is. This is just about the only place you can get concise revision notes. The other places usually give you too much information which is usually just stuff you already know.

Would you happen to have notes for iGCSE, too? That would be brilliant.

I’m searching for help for Cs IGCSE too.. have you found anything yet ?

Can you please do igcse computer science notes (0478)?

do you know any thing about as computer science because this is not enough for anyone in as

Actually yes it’s not enough for sure….it’s called notes and it is good after u finish studying

Jose Enrique Aroca Salom

You said a while ago your friend was making some notes for the A2 Computer Science. How are they going?

hey is it enough for cambridge exams?

is learning these notes enough for as

its not bro work hard and study from zakon too

padante sherpa

When will the paper 3 and 4 material be out

Not anytime soon as I do not have any resources – I did not complete A2 Computer Science

when will you update notes for a2 computer science 9608?

That won’t be possible as I did not take Computer Science to A2

Your notes are good how I will like to obtain P3 and P4

Sorry didn’t continue to A2 CS. No notes available.

you notes ar good

do you think this is enough for the test? if no, what else would you recommend? my exam is in a week xD

Study the notes and practice papers – make sure you know all the rules for coding and don’t make silly mistakes. You can do computing papers for practice for the theory section. My exams are in 2 days..

Hey bro do u have practical computer science notes for visual basic ?

No I completed my practical section in Python.

If it is possible for you can u upload the python one or send that on my email omarasimd005@gmail.com

The ones I mean are above

Just thought you should know, your notes say that SRAM consumes more power than DRAM however this is false, it’s the other way around.

That is true. Sorry we switched it around.

Hey bruv what grade did you get in computer science at as level?

Can you please do A2 notes for computer science and do you know any good book that I can study computer science 9608 from?

Hi, sorry i am not going to be continuing Computer Science to A2 however one og my friends will be and he may write notes which i will eventually upload if done. During AS, i used this textbook http://www.amazon.com/Cambridge-International-Computing-Coursebook-Examinations/dp/0521186625 it is for the computing syllabus but it has a lot of useful information that applies to Computer Science. I also used this wikibook which is aimed for UK Syllabuses but also has good information https://en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/A-level_Computing
As CS is a new syllabus there are very few resources so you should use a combination of textbooks and resources along with a copy of the syllabus to study it well.

do you have notes for applied ict

No sorry we did AS Computer Science not ICT
