Independent reading, research and homework are vital elements of this course. It is important that you ensure you put in the right amount of time and effort, in order to make sure you get the best grade possible in your exams.
.

Like any other A Level subject, ICT theory requires you to learn the facts and understand the principles. There is no shortcut - you will have to WORK HARD and COMPLETE YOUR HOMEWORK! The assignments in your homework book will help you to gain the knowledge and understanding required in the first part of your course.
.

Each assignment will require you to complete some reading and independent research in order to answer the questions properly. Whenever you are tempted to skip on the research & reading, remember: your answers will show whether or not you have completed the research – and so will your end of unit exams!
