This course covers the CIE iGCSE Computer Science course (course code 0984 & 0478) and is updated for the 2022 & 2023 syllabus update.
The course has been designed as a stand-alone distance learning course, but includes access to an optional weekly live class for iGCSE Computer Science students each week. Our current classes are:
Once you have enrolled, or have booked an individual masterclass you will have access to the classroom link at the top of your course under the “Course Information” area. If you are having trouble opening the online classroom, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each week, you will be set a short assignment to complete. We strongly recommend that you submit these for marking by your tutor each week to ensure that you have enough marked work for the full course.
Yes. As the exam board advises strongly that all students have experience of practical programming tasks, we have included practical tasks embedded within the lessons for you to attempt.
All programming is taught using the Python 3 language. However, these skills are easily transferrable to other languages if you wish to use these.
A number of practice tasks are included in the course. However, whilst the tasks are live the exam board asks that these tasks are not shared publically. Whilst some may do so, this would go against our ethical code of practice as we do not check that you have registered with your exam center before accessing the course.
Where we have been given permission to do so, solutions to tasks will be published.
Students can access a copy of their live tasks from their exam centers and should you need further help, please get in touch regarding 1-2-1 tuition.
Yes. In addition to the shorter quizzes within the course, there is a final quiz for each topic that uses short answer and multiple-choice questions, then two mock exam papers at the end of the course which will be marked by a qualified Computer Science teacher and returned to you with feedback.
