The A level course gives you a good grounding in all aspects of computer science. As such, it is a very good basis for further study of computing related subjects at university or further education.
Topics are clearly structured and cover a wide variety of computer science issues. Learners will study topics including information representation, communication and Internet technologies, hardware, software development, and relational database modelling. As they progress, learners will develop their computational thinking and use problem solving to develop computer-based solutions using algorithms and programming languages.
