IGCSE ICT Theory Notes
(and mind maps)
The IGCSE ICT theory examination is worth 40% of the total grade.

Use these sets of theory notes to revise the content of the theory examination.

The Mind Maps section will be very useful as a quick reference point to recap the information studied in the theory notes found on this page and within the printed packs I give you in class.

Sections 1 - 8 of this website also contain theory materials which you will find helpful.

Word of Warning!!

Don't leave your theory studies until the last minute. The theory test is big.... there will be alot of preperation needed if you are to be successful.

Mind Maps.....

  Exam Tips.....  


Read questions thoroughly before answering. For example: if the question asks you for two advantages make sure thats what you give.

If you don't know the answer to a question... have a guess. Don't leave any questions blank.

Make sure you understand the difference between explain, describe and identify. See my Examination keywords display in the classroom for help.
