GCSE Electronics

The course will give students a working knowledge and understanding of electronics, as well as developing designing and making skills. The course is perhaps best suited to students who enjoy designing and making and who are good at Science and Maths (L6 or higher by the end of Y9). The course content is very challenging, but highly rewarding, enabling students to develop functioning electronic systems, manufacturing their own PCB's and incorporating them into working products. The course involves a considerable amount of theory which is reinforced by practical work. In Year 10 a number of topics will be covered include: electronic sensors, micro controllers, digital counters, logic systems, CAD/CAM, PCB manufacturing and soldering. After May half term of Year 10, students will use their knowledge and understanding to design and make a fully functioning electronic product, which is worth 60% of the final GCSE mark. Students will sit one end of course examination (40%). All coursework is completed by February half term of Y11. This course is excellent preparation for students who wish to take A Level Product Design.
