GCSE Computer Science (J276)

GCSE Computer Science has two written papers. The first focuses on Computer Systems and the second on Computational Thinking, Algorithms and Programming.

Every student has access to a Microsoft Office 365 Class OneNote where all of the course content, worksheets and presentations are stored. We will continue to maintain this throughout.  Please use this resource (as you always have), follow the guidance and timings to develop your subject knowledge. 

We would also recommend the following websites as additional sources of revision:
