    I'm choosing my GCSE options, and I want to do ICT.

    Just found out in the options booklet provided by my school that they offer either Computer Science (like Computing - coding and all that stuff) and CiDA.

    It is a level 2 qualification I think. The exam board is Edexcel.
    I've been searching through the internet, and I can't find anything so i'm here for some help.

    My questions are;

    Is CiDA an actual GCSE?
    Is it recognized by employers?

    Thank you for your help!

    I did DiDa or CiDa for IT GCSE. They taught us how to create websites using Adobe Dreamweaver and edit videos and stuff. Idk what employers think of it but it does stand out on my uni application as it's the only subject where the exam board is stated as 'DiDa', while the others are 'edexcel, AQA etc'.
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
