Computers are widely used in all aspects of business, industry, government, education, leisure and the home. In this increasingly technological age, a study of computer science, and particularly how computers are used in the solution of a variety of problems, is not only valuable to the learners themselves but also essential to the future well-being of the country.
The WJEC Eduqas A level in Computer Science encourages learners to develop:
- an understanding of, and the ability to apply, the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, decomposition, logic, algorithms and data representation.
- the ability to analyse problems in computational terms through practical experience of solving such problems, including writing programs to do so.
- the capacity for thinking creatively, innovatively, analytically, logically and critically.
- the capacity to see relationships between different aspects of computer science.
