IGCSE COMPUTER SCIENCE 0478

Why take Computer Science?

The aims are to develop: • computational thinking, that is thinking about what can be computed and how, and includes consideration of the data required • understanding of the main principles of solving problems by using computers • understanding that every computer system is made up of sub-systems, which in turn consist of further sub-systems • understanding of the component parts of computer systems and how they interrelate, including software, data, hardware, communications and people • skills necessary to apply understanding to solve computer-based problems using a high-level programming language.
