Summary - New 2023-2025 Exam Specification

This first programming unit assumes that students have no knowledge, however, it progresses quickly on the assumption that many students will already have some experience of programming. Key programming concepts such as data types, variables and constants are dealt with in the first lesson. Selections using IF and CASE statements are considered in the second lesson. Lesson 3 covers iteration, including count-controlled, pre-condition and post-condition loops. Arrays are considered in lesson 4 with the final lesson 5 covering both string manipulation and library routines. Throughout the unit, practical opportunities are given for students to program. The final unit assesses students with written questions that emulate those they will experience in their final exam.

What people say...

Fantastic resources! An excellent time saving strategy for lesson preparation and marking. Concepts are comprehensive and structured appropriately for pupils and teachers.

Neferti Rolluqui. Head of Computer Science, Dhahran British Grammar School, Saudi Arabia

The key strengths of the materials are in their simplicity - you have the content pupils need to know, simply, attractively presented and then a well designed worksheet to test it. The worksheets look excellent and very effective as a tool to cement the learning.
