IGCSE Computer Science
IGCSE Computer Science focuses on computational thinking as well as their understanding of the principles to solve real-world problems with computers. IGCSE Computer Science encourages students to appreciate current and emerging computing technologies, as well as the benefits and risks associated with their use. It provides an excellent foundation for progression to Cambridge International AS and A Levels, as well as for other areas of study and daily life.
Students learn to program by writing computer code and gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of problem-solving with computers. Using algorithms and a high-level programming language, students apply their knowledge to create computer-based solutions as well as understand the advantages of using them.
The IGCSE Computer Science syllabus consists of topics divided into 8 sections:
- Data Representation
- Communication and Internet Technologies
- Hardware and Software
- Algorithm Design and Problem-Solving
