Edexcel GCSE (9-1) 1CP2 Computer Science

Published June 2024

Available in printed paperback format, or as a digital subscription edition

This book is aimed at GCSE students. It provides comprehensive yet concise coverage of all the topics covered in the new Edexcel 1CP2 Computer Science specification, written and presented in a way that is accessible to teenagers. It will be invaluable both as a course text and as a revision guide for students nearing the end of their course.

It is divided into six sections covering every element of the specification. Section 6 covers problem solving with programming with practical problems that help students when learn the key concepts required for paper 2. Python 3 is used and questions and examples can all be completed using syntax from the Programming Language Subset (PLS). 

Solutions to all questions and exercises are provided in a free teacher pack available on our website.

To accompany this textbook, PG Online also publishes a series of six downloadable teaching units. Each topic in a unit consists of a PowerPoint presentation, teacher’s notes, worksheets, homework sheets and a final assessment test with practice questions. Each topic within a unit is expected to be taught over several lessons in a week.

Unit 6 covers programming and gives ample opportunity for students to gain practical experience of answering questions in the style of Paper 2.

Units are sold as a lifetime site licence and may be loaded onto the school’s private network or learning platform.

What people say...

Your books are honestly amazing, thank you so much for continuing to make such excellent resources!

Mr Justin Roche. Computer Science teacher, Hanley Castle High School

The fact that the resources are so thorough and there is a WS and HWK for every lesson, has saved me a huge amount of planning time as there is already plenty for students to do.

Helen Webb. Science teacher, Lutterworth College
