Here is the Java practical prelim paper 2020 from the Pretoria 480 cluster. The question paper and the memo – the SQL section and the coding section.

Also the “Bare Bones approach” based on the memo. If you find the Java practical difficult, this is a strategy that will allow you to pass with 53% without reading the exam paper (Ok, you need to read the class diagrams and find the names of the classes. You must also know how to read in a text file using the Scanner class)

If you want to do well, the Bare Bones approach will ensure that you have the correct foundation to build on – without it, you will struggle.
