Information and Communication Technology (2520)

We are not developing a new A-level Information and Communication Technology qualification due to government changes to A-levels.

This is our outgoing A-level specification, available for re-sits only.

Our regulator Ofqual currently state that, with the exception of re-sits, the last time students will be able to sit exams in ICT will be in summer 2017 (AS level) and summer 2018 (A-level).

Re-sits will be available in summer 2019 (AS and A-level), but this will be restricted to students who have previously certificated.

As an alternative, you may like to consider A-level Computer Science or one of our Level 3 ICT Tech-levels.

Find out more about these changes and which qualifications we are planning to offer in the future. You can also contact the customer support team using the details shown below.
