Our Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science homeschooling course will guide your child through the principles of computer science that will give them the underpinning knowledge required for other science and engineering subjects.
Computer scientists design, develop, and apply the software and hardware for the programs we use day in day out. Almost every aspect of society, from family-owned businesses needing digital protection to homeless shelters needing a way to streamline their volunteer base, relies on computer science innovation.

• The course will prepare your child for (CAIE) Cambridge IGCSE Computer Science, syllabus 0478 or 0984.
• Before sitting the exam, your child will need to complete what is known as ‘pre-release material’ – specific programming exercises. The exam board sends this material about 5 months before the exam (January for June exams; July for November exams). The exam centre at which your child is registered should send this material to you. It must be completed before the exam, as the exam paper will refer to it.
• The exam comprises two papers:
Paper 1: Theory: 1 hour and 45 minutes. 60% of the total grade Paper 2: Problem Solving and Programming: 1 hour and 45 minutes. 40% of the total grade.
• There are Cambridge exam centres in over 150 countries. We can provide details of the most convenient.
