Algorithms and programming (Component 02)
Learners answer all the questions in Section A and all questions in Section B. There will be a mix of questions including short answer, longer answer and some higher tariff questions that will test the quality of written responses via a level of response mark scheme.
The whole of the Algorithms and programming content will be covered over the life of the specification.
Section A will contain questions which may cover writing algorithms and computational methods, programming and programming techniques and problem solving. These questions may contain some shorter answer questions.
Section B will have a scenario set at the start of the section; this will contain information that will be used for the questions that follow. The questions will be largely of a higher tariff with problem solving algorithms and programming again forming the basis.
What they want is
To understand what is meant by computational thinking, understand the benefits of applying computational thinking to solving a wide variety of problems, understand the principles of solving problems by computational methods, to be able to use algorithms to describe problems and be able to analyse a problem by identifying its component parts.
What the points on the spec they can choose from is
