Learners on this course will need to think creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and critically. You will also need the ability to analyse problems in computational terms through practical experience of solving such problems, including writing programs to do so.
During the course you will develop an understanding of, and the ability to apply and the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, decomposition, logic, algorithms and data representation.
By the end of the course you will have developed the ability to articulate the individual (moral), social (ethical), legal and cultural opportunities and risks of digital technology.
Mathematical skills form a core part of this Computer Science A-level.
