DH36 34 HNC Computing Graded Unit - Version 8

It has brought to our attention that there are two errors within the HN Exemplar DH36 34 HNC Computing Graded Unit - Version 8.

Question 12 - Should have read `Anti-Spyware' instead of `Spyware'
Question 25 - C & D should have read base 10 and not 16.

These amendments have now been made and the revised version is now available on the SQA Secure Website.

Please ensure that if using this paper for your Exam that you have the most up-to-date version.

Many Thanks

Head of Centre Meeting - 1st of February

I just thought that I would take a few minutes to update anyone who visits this blog and give them details of what happened at this event. We had a good Heads of Centre event, held at SFEU, where we spent the morning looking at the DIVA project and then we gave further updates on the state of various developments where the majority are all due in centres for registrations in August. If you require a copy of the presentation slides that we used on the day then please e-mail me directly.
