A2 Topics build upon the knowledge taught at AS and further develop understanding of the system's life cycle, networks and communications, understanding how systems are designed and the implications of ICT on industry and business.
ICT lessons are usually heavily multimedia based; presentations and online resources alongside more traditional approaches are used to demonstrate technology in use. Discussions are also a common feature as opinions from the ICT generation are very much valued. A rigorous approach to assessment is undertaken to ensure students are achieving to their potential.
