Computing is concerned with the use and functioning of computers. The A7 year of this course builds progressively on the concepts established during the AS work – it involves working with more complex models for the functioning of computer systems, developing more complicated algorithms and understanding different techniques for solving computational problems. The coursework gives students an opportunity to work on a programmed system from start to finish, producing a substantial piece of work. As with AS computing this is an intellectually challenging course, but an ideal preparation for those students interested in studying computer science at university, or who are interested in a career as a programmer.
