    What do I need to get on the A/S level?

    N.B. This course is not suitable as an introductory IT course.

    The course is designed for students who have followed a course in the National Curriculum IT. Students are expected to have a working knowledge of Windows and Microsoft Office as well as either GCSE IT, at grade C or above, or Key Skills IT Level 2.

    What else can I study?

    The only restriction, apart from timetable considerations, is that the student cannot be entered for GCSE Computing whilst studying this course. The AS level is normally studied as part of a course of AS/A2 level subjects. However AS ICT could also be studied in conjunction with a GNVQ programme depending on timetabling considerations.
