Electronics
KEY STAGE 4.
Electronics is a practically based subject where practical skills are developed alongside the theory to allow candidates to attain a deeper understanding. The course is structured to allow prominence to be given to technological aspects of studying electronics. The direction of development starts with real applications of electronics and then move towards the principles necessary to understand these applications and not vice versa. Candidates' capability is developed through a flexible and broad-based approach.

Assessment Scheme and Units:
Unit 1:- Discovering Electronics (35%)
Electronics Systems, Compnents in Circuits, Output, Switching and Sensing Circuits and Combinational Logic Systems.

Unit 2:- Applications of Electronics (40%)
Timing Circuits, Dequential Systems, Interface Circuits, Analog Communication and Programmable Control Circuits.

Unit 3:- Electronics System Design and Realisation (25%)
Candidates/teachers devise a design task. They realise and write a report on the development of the task. The assessment is undertaken entirely under the supervision of the teacher.
