Examples of pseudo-code

This page is intended to be used to illustrate the pseudocode used in the external examinations. This pseudocode can also be used as a 'stepping stone' in the development of code that may be used in practical work, either within the classroom or for part of the internally assessed work (Solution).

The examples have been developed by members of the senior examining team, paper authors and teachers and should provide teachers with examples of how the approved notation can be used.

The use of the pseudocode is designed to show the algorithmic thinking that inderpins the course and is language independent. It should be noted that it is not necessary for the pseudocode to be syntactically perfect.

The "Approved Notation Sheet" will be available in January 2012.
