So you're a big supporter of gcse ict? Why? You're a twit (see how easy it is to throw insults - far harder to give a reasoned argument). Look at the waffle taught, the crazy new coursework, the drop in numbers taking a level ict and the demise of computing. I don't know about you but we carefully survey our pupils each year and the message is the same - they hate ict cos it's boring and they really loathe the coursework. The ict advisors at the lea did a pupil survey after concerns were raised last year across schools in the lea. Same message. The gcse computing course by ocr is ok but when you get to the detail, and you compare to their as, their is very little difference if you are bright pupil, and indeed, over two years and with no coursework hoop jumping it is perfect for g&t kids.
