  • Course level:


The Cambridge Computer Science Course teaches the principles and practices of computing, giving you confidence by honing your ability to think and program computationally. By writing the computer code, you learn programming and understanding the main principles of problem-solving with the use of computers. Using algorithms and a high-level programming language you can develop computer-based solutions to problems. Along with this, you should develop a plethora of technical skills along with the ability to test effectively and evaluate computing solutions.

This course helps the student appreciate the current emerging computing technologies and its benefits. When you take up the computer science course, you’re also supporting your learning in other subjects of science and engineering, along with life skills used in your daily life. The IGCSE Computer Science course helps the learners develop skills for their next steps in the education field, thereby honing skills in employment as well.
