They can apply their understanding to develop computer-based solutions to problems using algorithms and a high-level programming language. Learners also develop a range of technical skills, as well as being able to effectively test and evaluate computing solutions. Studying Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Computer Science will help learners appreciate current and emerging computing technologies, the benefits of their use and recognise their potential risks.
Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Computer Science helps learners develop an interest in computing and gain confidence in computational thinking.
