computer science

Sixth Form



Computer Science is a practical subject where students can apply the academic principles learned in the classroom to real-world systems. It is an intensely creative subject that combines invention and excitement, that can look at the natural world through a digital prism. Computer Science values computational thinking, helping students to develop critical thinking skills to solve problems, design systems and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. 

We have considered 'the competition' and consider the Cambridge specification to be the best option for Jumeirah College students. Students may expect to find some greater breadth of
mathematical content. Compared with other specifications it has academic rigour and content that is closer to that which JC students may expect to find in a university Computer Science course. The nature of the content allows candidates to demonstrate many high level skills sought by University courses.


Why is it a useful qualification?

A Level Computer Science provides a suitable foundation for the study of Computer Science or related courses in higher education. Equally, it is suitable for Students intending to pursue careers or further study in Computer Science or ICT, or as part of a course of general education.
