Cambridage International GCSE in Computer Science qualification

The International GCSE or simply the IGCSE in computer science enables students to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science by studying topics including logic, algorithms, data representation, computer processor, programming, coding, algorithms, software, database, security and protection systems of computers and more of other interesting computer science topics.
In this course students learn to think of how to provide digital solutions for certain life or work problems through developing digital programs, that implies studying how to design, implement and test software. Students is also introduced to computer related ethical issues pertaining to the digital world and the inherited risks comes with technology on a personal or business level. The course sets the main building blocks of understanding what is the digital language and how computer can interpret it and convert to a set of output actions or display it on screen to something that human can understand.
Student will learn in this course the basics of some programming languages including writing codes and how computer can take a set of codes and covert it into specific sets of output actions such as operations executed by robots and controlled machines. Learning computer science builds confidence when dealing with computer related matters especially in a growing trend towards computerising everything possible!
Studying the Cambridge IGCSE curriculum in computer science is a suitable course for delivering through distance learning and due to the availability and flexibility of its formal exams. Once you have completed your course, you will have prepared yourself to attend an external formal examinations in either of the British Council or one of Cambridge approved examination centers in your country of residence.

Accreditation and Course Code

Examination Centres

It is known that everywhere in the word student studies full time at a school sits her/his exams in the same school, but due to the popularity and demand for the British qualifications many examination boards such as Pearson-Edexcel and Cambridge International have allowed private candidates such as distance learners to be able to sit for their exams from their country of residence without the need to come to the UK to take those exams, this was dealt with by appointing some organizations in each country chosen by the examination boards (Pearson-Edexcel or Cambridge International) in order provide the exams location to the students.
