All about our Computer Science A-Level course:
A-Level Computer Science will provide insight into, and experience of how computer science works. Key features include problem solving using computers, programming and algorithms, and mathematical skills used to express computational laws and processes e.g. Boolean algebra/logic and comparison of the complexity of algorithms.
Whilst learning and understanding the implementation of processes and algorithms, students will have the chance to develop a slimmed down programming project which is focused on coding, using suitable programming language and agile methods through the coursework component.
How is this course assessed?
This is a two-year programme consisting of two exam units (80%) and one coursework unit (20%).
