In January 2013, the government announced that GCSE Computing will count as a science option in the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) for secondary school league tables from 2014 (published in January 2015) – alongside Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Any student who sits any three of the four separate sciences and achieves at least a C in two of them will meet the science requirement of the EBacc.
Science plus Additional Science will still count towards the EBacc as an alternative combination. Computing cannot be substituted for Science or Additional Science in this combination.
We've involved teachers and consulted with key partners in the computing teaching community throughout the development process. We've done this so that our specification, support materials and publisher resources will provide you with everything you need to teach this qualification with confidence.
