Before my teacher linked me to your video playlist for the Database (Task 3) I knew I was destined to fail and therefore greatly compromise my ICT AS level as the Database task includes the most marks which I’m sure you’re aware of. I was going to fail because I simply didn’t understand the software and the teacher didn’t have too much time to help as it would take her ages to guide me through the whole task. Four weeks before the deadline I was getting depressed about this project, my other subjects were fine but I knew ICT would be failed if I didn’t complete this to a good enough standard. I was stumbling through the software, a long way behind my classmates apart from a couple who knew they were going to fail ICT before they took it (sorry Dan and George). I figured it just wasn’t going to happen and I would have to retake all of ICT next year because of this… Until I received an e-mail from my teacher, a playlist to all of your wonderful videos. The way you went through everything slowly but not too slow and concisely, not filming anything unnecessary help enormously. I completed more of the work over one weekend than I had done for the previous month! Even though you weren’t doing exactly the same project everything still made sense and most importantly I was finally understanding the damn software! It took me a couple more nights to complete and I couldn’t have been happier. I’m handing it in at the end of this week and I’m more than satisfied sir! Thank you. I know the read was longer than I had promised earlier but I had to do something, I couldn’t just give you another measly view on all the videos of your playlist, I had to write something to the man himself, so if you’re still reading, if it’s worth your time, I must thank you one more time as you’ve probably saved me a year of my life as I can progress to the next level of ICT! I don’t know if you get paid or anything but I just want you to know that making the videos helped one mere student at least, and I will be forever grateful, thanks again Paul!

I finally downloaded your materials and had an inspection of them. I had been so busy before now. I am blown away by the amount of work and the quality of teaching is apparent to me in them also.

I have only briefly looked at these resources, and they looked excellent in the way that they have been organized and seamlessly put together. I can’t wait to use them. Money well spent!!

Hi Paul just to let you know that I took the resources to my student yesterday and they have been a MASSIVE help to him. A lot of progress has been made and he has something that he can work with when I’m not there.
Thank you so much – I just realised I hadn’t downloaded the Teacher Pack which I have now done and the files are there. These are excellent resources and my students are enjoying using them a great deal.

I’ve been using your resources with year 10 for computational thinking. Really impressed with them so far. The videos and activities are great.

Workbooks for theory lessons work really well. The workbooks are mainly made from @paullongnet Ultimate GCSE workbook and then some additional Q’s I’ve made myself. His Covid-19 license saved us in lockdown and I highly recommend purchasing them for this year #caschat

Teacher, Hazelwick School
Placing an order for these fantastic resources Paul to support a new colleague.
I’ve just logged on and looked through all your similar but different resources and answers. Thank you thank you thank you! Can’t even imagine how long all that would have taken me to do. What a huge benefit to students having those similar tasks to gain the skills.

Paul sets everything out very clearly in his user guides. You don’t need to attend OCR training sessions costing in excess of £200 if you buy these guides!!
Teacher, Sandhurst School (Berkshire)
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your free new specification evaluation. I have been with OCR for a long time but I think I have made my mind up to jump ship to Edexcel.

Just like to say a huge thank you – your resources are amazing.
