A-level Computer Science is a challenging yet rewarding choice of study.
Building on the foundation laid by GCSE Computer Science, studying for an A-level involves learning familiar topics in greater depth as well as completely new topics.
Your algorithmic thinking skills will be taken to a new level and you will need to develop your programming ability in a high-level language such as Python or C#.
Some topics you will cover are:
- Abstract Data Structures such as linked lists, stack and queues
- Object Oriented Programming
- Networks and Network Protocols
- Advanced Boolean Algebra
- Algorithm design
- Low-level programming
… and more.
While some of the content is mostly fact-based, there are many topics which involve conceptual learning and strategic problem solving. These are the areas where having a one-to-one or small-group tutor can really make a difference. A tutor can quickly identity conceptual difficulties and gaps in previous knowledge, and give you the support you need to move forward with your learning at any given time.
