Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science helps learners develop an interest in computational thinking and an understanding of the principles of problem-solving using computers. They apply this understanding to create computer-based solutions to problems using algorithms and a high-level programming language. Learners also develop a range of technical skills, and the ability to effectively test and evaluate computing solutions.
Studying Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science helps learners appreciate current and emerging computing technologies, the benefits of their use and recognise their potential risks. It provides an ideal foundation for progression to Cambridge International AS & A Level and is valuable for other areas of study and everyday life.
This syllabus is graded from 9 to 1 but is otherwise the same as Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science (0478). You will find additional past papers and other resources on the web page for Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science (0478); these may be useful for teaching Cambridge IGCSE (9-1) Computer Science (0984).
