Turing House
6th Form Curriculum Guide - Year 12 Computer Science
Term 1-3Component 01: Computer systems 
In this unit, students will learn about the structure and function of the processor, types of processor and different processor architectures. This unit also covers input, output and storage devices and how these can be applied to the solution of different problems.
Assessment: Students will sit a written End of Unit assessment. This topic is a component of Unit 1 which 40% of overall qualification.Key Words and Terms
 
Term 1-4Component 3 - Programming Project   
Students are expected to apply the principles of computational thinking to a practical coding programming project. They will analyse, design, develop, test, evaluate and document a program written in a suitable programming language. The project is designed to be independently chosen by the student and provides them with the flexibility to investigate projects within the diverse field of computer science. We support a wide and diverse range of languages.
Assessment: Students will produce a written report.Key Words and Terms
 
Term 3-6Component 02: Algorithms and programming  
This builds on component 01 to include computational thinking and problem-solving. It covers: -What is meant by computational thinking (thinking abstractly, thinking ahead, thinking procedurally etc.) -Problem solving and programming – how computers and programs can be used to solve problems . -Algorithms and how they can be used to describe and solve problems.
Assessment: Students will sit a written End of Unit Assessment. This topic is a component of Unit 2 which 40% of overall qualification.Key Words and Terms
