Computing *FEES PAYABLE* at Hurstpierpoint College

Course description

Although only 20% of the final marks are awarded for coursework, Computing is a highly practical course where we teach beyond the limits of the syllabus. It is the aim of the department to ensure that all students taking the subject acquire the practical skills that will make them employable in the real world, increasing their choice of opportunities when leaving the College.

The overall aim of this course is to encourage students to develop an understanding of the principles of problem solving using computers. These studies will help students to understand the range of applications of computers and the effects of their use so that students can apply this understanding to develop computer based solutions to problems. Students will develop an understanding of systems analysis and design and methods of implementation, testing and documentation.

Entry requirements

Students who have studied Information Technology at GCSE should have an A grade. There is quite a mathematical content to the course, especially in the second year theory, and therefore candidates should have achieved a grade A in Mathematics at GCSE.
