2018: the year of the CAT!

Posted: January 10, 2018 in Grade 12

I have not been very active on this blog, because there are so many other resources available on the CAT & IT Teachers Facebook page, the Tech Teachers site, etc.

I do not believe in just copying what is already out there, or reinventing the wheel. In the end this blog might just stop existing as other (better) resources appear, but until then I will still post my small contributions to improve our subject.

I have separated the different questions from the past 5 NSC question papers (excluding Nov 2017, which will be added soon) and reorganised them according to content. It is available in Google Drive to download (please take care to download only, not edit or remove):


Use it as a teaching tool, revision, setting of papers, etc. By doing 5 questions on the same topic will definitely benefit the learners.

Create a wordwall using the terminology provided.

Use the screenshots together with the terminology found in the question papers. Learners should be shown what the concepts look like.

Please feel free to add more pictures to this folder!

Or share it with me:

Please give some feedback, sharing your thoughts on how we can improve the results in our subject, making it more attractive to the above average achiever.
