OCR Computing Unit A453 Student Guide

Accessible, well-structured notes guide students through the programming project for OCR Unit A453.

Includes separate sections for each area of marking criteria (Design, Development, Programming, Testing and Evaluation), describing what is required to reach top marks in each. Students read the guidance for each section before applying it in their own work.

For each section:

  • Marking criteria is broken down and explained in student-friendly language, illustrated with examples based on an original scenario
  • 'Deliverables' lists remind students of the evidence they need to provide
  • Self-assessment checklists help students identify where they can improve
