    Hi Everyone,

    I'm just about to start my ITT year and need to do a subject knowledge audit on the A Level AQA spec.

    Does anyone know of anywhere I can get this in spreadsheet format please?

    Many thanks!

    Create a spreadsheet using the specification and copy/paste. Should take 5 minutes.

    But that's effort and new teachers seem to only want to click download!

    Can you do this for us?

    I tried this first, it produces approximately 4000 individual rows. Today I've spent roughly 2 hours editing it so far with probably another 2 to go to get into the kind of format that's usable.

    You're welcome to have a copy as soon as I've done it.

    It'll be in the format of one column with the main sections in it, then a second with it all broken down into individual items. I need to be able to tick off what I know/need to work on, so it's got to be similar to that.

    When do you think it will be ready?

    That was a possibility but I wanted to be able to add comments too. I've created it now. In the end I used 'paste special' and that got it into as close a format as I could get it automatically, then filtered the spreadsheet and deleted hundreds of extra rows.

    I just thought that anyone teaching it must have already done this, so why invent the wheel? I'm not work shy, just want to spend my time efficiently and effectively, not reproducing what dozens of other teachers must have already done.

    I'm currently doing my knowledge audit so will upload the basic spreadsheet once I'm done, so that it's got any mods I tweak along the way.

    Here you go, anyone that would like it, feel free :)

    It's the AQA A Level CS specification in spreadsheet format.

    It's got all the titles, subtitles and additional information.
