ICT A Level at Kemnal Technology College

Course description

In today's world, where ICT is constantly changing, individuals will increasingly need technological and information literacy skills that include the ability to gather, process and manipulate data. These skills are now as essential as the traditional skills of numeracy and literacy.

Course content

Year 12

Paper: AS Unit G061: Information, Systems and Applications

Paper: This unit covers the fundamental knowledge required to support all subsequent units of study. It is intended to provide candidates with a deeper understanding and knowledge of basic concepts covered by a GCSE (Short Course) syllabus in ICT; however, the depth of study is at AS Level and candidates are expected to respond appropriately and fully to question papers.

Coursework: AS Unit G062: Structured ICT Tasks

Coursework: This unit is designed to develop practical aspects of the subject in a way that is not possible when leading to a formal written examination. A structured approach is possible that is suitable for AS GCE candidates. The tasks are intended to be structured in nature, covering practical aspects of ICT that cannot easily be tested in an examination environment.

Year 13

Paper: A2 Unit G063: ICT Systems, Applications and Implications

Paper: This module covers communications between computers and interactions between humans and computers. A range of other information and communications technologies is also covered. The convergence of communications technology and information technology and their impact on society, commerce and industry is an integral part of the module. Candidates are expected to acquire a more in-depth knowledge of the range of application areas covered at AS Level ICT, and demonstrate knowledge of the growing range of applications resulting from advances in ICT.

Coursework: A2 Unit G064: ICT Project

Coursework: This project allows candidates to develop their knowledge and understanding of ICT and the skills described in Assessment Objective 2. The project is a substantial piece of work requiring analysis and design over an extended period of time, which is organised, evaluated and presented in a report.
