Python For GCSE

About This Section

I have put these pages together to form a reference of basic programming techniques up to and including GCSE, with the OCR specification being foremost in mind.

Whilst the reference and exercises are written with a view to building the skills necessary for the GCSE qualification, the material may also prove useful for someone looking to dip their toe into Python. This might suit someone wishing to make more sense of the MicroPython materials in the micro:bit section or someone wanting a quick hit of Python to help them through a one-off task.


Throughout this section, I will be writing programs using IDLE. When you download and install Python using, this will be installed for you at the same time.
