Computing and IT- Devices & Systems- Software Development- E-communication & Security

The course involves constant work on the computers but has an even mix of theory and practical.

You will have to work hard and there will be a big step up in the amount of work you should be producing

You are continuously assessed on an on-going basis so you need to perform consistently

There will be very few scores/grades with focus on formative assessment but there will be limited spaces for the S4 class
