Solution notes to selected Part II exam questions
Computer Laboratory > Neil Dodgson > Solution notes to selected Part II exam questions

These are solution notes to selected past examination questions. Please note that they are solution notes designed to help the internal and external examiners check the quality of the questions. They are not model answers. Complete answers in an examination would be expected to have more detail than these notes. For security the solution notes were hand written. I have provided all of the solution notes that I have been able to locate. The notes incorporate the marking scheme for the question. Sometimes the marking scheme is annotated with a set of unique letters or characters or tick marks, this indicates how the marker indicated, on the student's examination answer, that the student had made the appropriate point.
