What will I learn in GCE Applied ICT?
Computers are now widely used in all aspects of government, business, education, leisure and the home. In an increasingly technological age, a study of Advanced Information Technology and particularly how computers are used in the solution of a variety of problems, is valuable to you as a student, and is useful in future employment. The course provides an excellent foundation in the world of computers and Information & Communications Technology, covering a wide range of knowledge and skills in depth.
The course consists of 6 modules, all of which involve you working independently to produce a portfolio of ICT evidence. These include:
Unit 1 - Using ICT to communicate
Unit 2 - How organisations use ICT
Unit 3 - ICT solution for individuals and society
Unit 9 - Working to a brief
Unit 10 - Developing spreadsheets
Unit 14 - Developing and creating websites
How will I be assessed?
During the first AS, you will produce 2 assignment portfolios, which are marked internally and moderated by the examination board. You will undertake one externally examined unit (unit 2) which involves you producing a portfolio that is taken into the examination.
In the second year, you will produce 2 more assignment portfolios which again are internally and moderated by the examination board. You will undertake one more externally examined unit (unit 9) which involves you producing a portfolio that again can be taken into the examination.
