GCSE Digital IT
"Computers are incredibly fast, accurate, and stupid. Human beings are incredibily slow, inaccurate, and brilliant. Together they are powerful beyond imagination" - Albert Einstein
The qualification has three components. In components 1 and 2 you will carry out tasks or assignments that your teacher will mark. The internal grading and quality assurance of these two components will give you a clear idea of how well you are progressing in your qualification.
Component 3 is externally assessed by Pearson and assesses the knowledge and skills you have developed across all three components. The external assessment will test your ability to recall the knowledge you have gained and allow you to demonstrate that you can apply that knowledge in realistic
scenarios and situations.
