This course is based on how I would approach the creation of the database and produce a solution and evidence for the new SAM material as produced by the examination board on 10 April 2018.

This course is based entirely on how I would approach this unit personally.  It does not reflect the way the exam board recommend it and I have no affiliation with the exam board whatsoever.

As this is a based on a genuine examination paper this course is available free of charge.  However in order to access it you will need to be a teacher or student at a recognised education establishment.  Therefore please let me have a school/college based email address to gain access.
