Computer Science A Level
This exciting advanced qualification gives students an excellent opportunity to investigate how computers work and how they are used to develop computer programming and problem solving skills. Students will also undertake fascinating in-depth research and practical work, including investigations into Python, encryption and assembly language programming.
Looking Further Ahead
Computer Science is a foundational science. It provides a way to understand something that permeates almost every aspect of modern life. Information-based tools and devices are now fundamental in education, medicine, finance, communication and entertainment. None of them would have been possible without the creative energy and analytical skills of the teams of creative people that conceived, designed, and built them.
Universities tend to expect students wishing to read Computer Science to have an A level or equivalent qualification in Mathematics.
