Edexcel 9-1 IGCSE Computer Science Practice Exams

Author rank 358
Author: Mark Batchelor at Yacapaca
Paper 1: 
  • 30 questions simulating the 1-4 mark questions from the exam, drawn at random from an item bank of 189 questions.
  • 3-6 mark questions as SPAs. 
  • 6 topic quizzes for revision. Each quiz displays 10 questions from a bank of about 30, making them excellent material for Mastery Learning assignments. 
Paper 2:
  • Paper 2 is a 3-hour practical examination. Practice materials for are currently in preparation. 
Short-text questions
The short-text questions in our Premium quizzes are auto-marked using an artificially-intelligent algorithm that can match the mark a human moderator would give at least 80% of the time. When a student challenges the mark the algorithm assigns, you should look at the individual student's response and form your own judgement. 

Find the responses listed at Assignments Tab->Results->Short text responses  

Long (up to 8-mark) questions
Long-text assessments are delivered as whole-class activities with formative peer assessment, normally lasting 30 minutes each. They use our Structured Peer Assessment module. Note that once started, SPAs cannot be finished early. You can however adjust the timing up until the moment you start the exercise. 

To run an SPA in the classroom:
  1. Assign as normal.
  2. When students are ready, click the Start button in the Assignments list. Make sure you have enough time; an SPA cannot be stopped half way through. You can adjust the time allowed at the start point, but not after. Default timings vary from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of marks available. In general students will have slightly over 1 minute of answering time per mark, plus 2 minutes for the other two steps in the process.
  3. Students will work through a 3-step process of write|judge|vote.
  4. When they are finished, you can access their answers from the Assignments list. Answers are ranked by the process but these ranks do not correlate direct to grades.
