GCE Digital Technology *
Digital Technology is a new A Level examination which explores how information and communication technology is used to store, process an
d present information efficiently and accurately.
The influence of digital technology in all aspects of our lives continues to accelerate. Current and emerging technologies and information services are transforming how we communicate with each other, how we work and the ways we learn. It is essential that we can understand how this technology works in order to make proper use of it. It is also necessary to investigate and understand security issues in order to keep our data and information systems secure from hackers or to recover data in the event of a disaster.
This qualification is for students who are interested in current and emerging technologies and the impact they have on our business and social lives and who wish to utilise them effectively. It is likely to appeal to all, but particularly those students who enjoyed studying GCSE ICT, Mathematics, the Sciences or Technology and Design at GCSE.
