IGCSE Computer Science 0478 (monthly)




Why take Computer Science?

The aims are to develop:

  • computational thinking, that is thinking about what can be computed and how, and includes consideration of the data required
  • understanding of the main principles of solving problems by using computers
  • understanding that every computer system is made up of subsystems, which in turn consist of further subsystems
  • understanding of the component parts of computer systems and how they interrelate, including software, data, hardware, communications and people
  • skills necessary to apply understanding to solve computer-based problems using a high-level programming language.
