This MasterClass covers lessons for Information Technology Paper 1 (Programming and SQL) and Paper 2 (Theory) for the Grade 12 IEB examinations.
The Information Technology MasterClass Series of videos was produced to highlight, clarify and refine the most important concepts as described in the Subject Assessment Guidelines (SAGs) for Information Technology.
An effort was made to address the more difficult concepts and the focus was on revising and clarifying most frequently examined concepts, rather than on reteaching. Most of the theoretical concepts outlined are from the grade 11 SAGs, given that we have not had much time this year to revisit those concepts which form the bulk of the theory examination. Helpful hints and what students need to watch out for when answering examination questions are interspersed within the content.
After each video, students should take some time to consolidate their understanding of the concepts discussed, by attempting to answer questions from past examination papers specifically on that particular topic.
