S4-6 Coursework

Computing is a practical subject, and a number of our courses are partly assessed by a practical coursework task.  These courses are shown below, together with the percentage of the final mark which the coursework component is worth:

  • Advanced Higher Computing (40%)
  • Higher Computing (30%)
  • Higher Information Systems (30%)
  • Int 2 Computing (30%)
  • Int 2 Information Systems (30%)

All senior pupils will be working on their coursework tasks when they return from study leave (w/c 7 Feb), and  the week following the February holiday (w/c 21 Feb).

Exam preparation for S3 -S6

The Easter holiday traditionally has been the time Scottish pupils ‘bite the bullet’ and settle into a regime of personal study for the SQA exams.

In Computing we look for students to show some common sense! A few minutes, as often as possible, spent going over the Units of work, noting down any topics or features they are not sure about so they can discuss after the holiday with their teacher.

Make use of the Internet as well as their notes with visits to Revise computing and Bitesize as well as other school based sites.

The Bogs and Wikis will also help.

We need to spend some time understanding this TECHNICAL section of the course.

Intermediate 2 Information systems (S4-S6)

This coming week the class will start their Information Systems coursework. This is an open-book assessment which is used to assess each pupil’s practical skills. The coursework accounts for 30% of the overall course mark.

The class have been given the tasks and the marking scheme so that they see where they have to target their efforts!
