We would like to invite you and your colleagues to provide feedback on the preparation and delivery of the GCSE (9-1) Computer Science Application of Computational Thinking (1CP2/02) onscreen assessment by completing this short questionnaire.


We know that Examination Officers, IT Technicians, Heads of Departments and Subject Teachers have all played a vital role in ensuring that your centre was able to deliver this assessment successfully, so please do forward the questionnaire to all those that were involved with this qualification.

If you are able to do so, we would appreciate it if you could submit your feedback by Friday 7 July, so we can capture this information and assess what improvements could be made for future series.

If you are delivering, or are considering delivering, our 2020 Computer Science specification and have not already been contacted please complete the Intention to offer form below.

Summer 2022 demonstrated that we have improved accessibility on Paper 1 and the new Paper 2 performed really well. We are now in line with other AOs in terms of grade boundaries and grade statistics. The question now is, why would everyone not, adopt our specification? – if you are convinced, please do make sure you spread the word among colleagues, moving to our specification is easily done as so much of the content is the same or similar and the practical programming aspect of our spec and the lack of a Pseudocode language are motives enough!

Feedback on 2022 paper 1 and paper 2 is available on our website

Let me know of any colleagues that would like to chat!
