AQA A Level Computer Science Programming Tasks 2021

This course has been designed to support students already studying for the 2021 A Level Computer Science exam with AQA. Whilst this course includes practical examples of questions, these have been developed from an understanding of previous exam papers and are in no way a prediction of the exam itself.

This course does not include the poreliminary material or skeleton code – please ensure that you obtain this from your teacher or exam centre.

This course is designed to be studied over a number of weeks and will release additional questions to you throughout the academic year. You will be able to track your progress by completing the quizzes and marking the practical questions as completed.
