    Computer Science now part of EBacc

    Computer science is going to become part of the English Baccalaureate - one of the measures used in school league tables in England.

    It will be included as one of the science options that count towards this measure.

    Did see this on the news before I left for work, I guess ball part this means it is much more crucial in education?

    Does this mean schools will actually dedicate more budget towards IT?

    Computer science will be regarded as a core subject linked with the Sciences apparently.

    Today, the Education Secretary announced that computer science will be added to the list of separate science options (so there are now four separate sciences instead of the traditional three) in the EBacc. Pupils who sit any three of the four separate sciences and get at least a C in two of them will get the EBacc. For instance, a pupil who sits physics, chemistry and computer science and gets at least two Cs will fulfil the science requirement of the EBacc. This change has no effect on those doing the ‘traditional’ three separate sciences, it is just another option. The ‘core plus additional’ option is unchanged.

    Computer Science will be one of the sciences, not a standalone which kinda baffles me
