About the course

The key features of OCR’s GCSE (9-1) in Computer Science:

  • A simple and intuitive model, consisting of two papers, one focusing on the theory of Computer Science and one with a focus on programming and algorithms.  Both papers have identical weighting and mark allocations.

This specification/qualification will enable you to develop:

  • Valuable thinking and programming skills that are extremely attractive in the modern workplace.
  • A deep understanding of computational thinking and how to apply it through a chosen programming language.
  • The specification has been designed to seamlessly transition into Computer Science at AS Level and/or A Level (we currently offer OCR Computer Science AS Level and A Level at CTK)

Assessment
The assessment consists of two written examinations and an externally moderated non-exam assessment.

 

Component 1—Computer Systems

Duration 80      Weighting 1 hr. 30 mins   50% of total GCSE

Systems architecture, Memory, Storage, Wired and wireless networks, network topologies, protocols and layers, network security, system software, moral social legal and cultural and environmental concerns.

Component 2—Computational Thinking, Algorithms and Programming.

Duration 80   Weighting 1 hr. 30 mins   50% of total GCSE

Algorithms, Programming Fundamentals, Producing Robust Programmes, Boolean Logic, Programming Languages and Integrated Development Environments.

Programming Project

All students will be given the opportunity to undertake a practical programming task during their course of study.

Practical programming skills will be assessed in Component 2 of the qualification.

Cambridge National Certificate in Creative iMedia

Exam Board—OCR

About the Course

The Cambridge National Certificate in Creative iMedia is a combination of practical work, work-related coursework and an examination. The course will equip you with a range of creative media skills and provide opportunities to develop transferable skills such as research, planning, and review, working with others and communicating creative concepts effectively allowing you to create fit-for-purpose creative media products. You learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands and are set by the examination board. The coursework will enable you to develop your independence and creativity .

Course Content

The Cambridge National Certificate consists of four units which will be studied over Years 10 and 11. The

units are:

R081: Pre-production skills.

R082: Creating digital graphics.

R085: Creating a multipage website.

R087: Creating interactive multimedia  products.

Assessment

Two of the units that you study will be assessed through assignment work which is set by the examination board and assessed by your class teachers. A sample of this work will be externally checked by an examination board specialist. These coursework units account for 25% each towards your overall grade. The other two units are assessed externally, one through an examination set and marked by the examination board, which lasts for one and quarter hours, and the other is assessed through controlled assignment work in the classroom.

Grades

The Cambridge National Certificate is equivalent to one GCSE grades 9—1
