You have to be okay at maths ( if you can get a 5/6 at gcse you will manage). You don’t have to have done it at GCSE, but if you have, it makes the first year really easy.

the exam board i do (Cambridge international) does have a sort of course work , same as in gcse you get a pre- release around January which has a bunch of programing questions. you can prepare solutions to them before hand and in the programing paper s in may/june there is a section dedicated to the prerelease that asks you a selection of questions that showed up in the prerelease. so it kinnda guarantees a few marks.
as for the course it self its split into programing (in one of the given languages) and theory ( sort of how everything works when it comes to computers and the internet)
