Our GCSE Computer Science course gets students working with real-world, practical programming techniques that give them a good understanding of what makes technology work. With computational thinking skills at its core , students develop the techniques to solve problems, design systems and understand human and machine intelligence.
Developed collaboratively with teachers, industry and the wider computer science community, our GCSE course has built-in progression to further studies and is recognised as developing the skills that employers value.
The qualification is split into three components:
Component 1 – Computer systems (40%)
Component 2 – Computational thinking, algorithms and programming (40%)
Component 3 – A programming project (20%)
