IGCSE ICT (Information Communication Technology) 0417 is quite an interesting and scoring subject! It allows you to test your skills with practicals as well as with theory. For most of us, the two ICT Practical papers (Paper 2 and 3) are a big boon as they boost your grade for IGCSE ICT. However, the challenge arises when it comes to the ICT Theory paper (Paper 1). The ICT Theory paper is 2 hours long and consists of questions ranging from one word answers to complex extended answers. The best way to score high in your IGCSE ICT Theory paper is to understand all the facts and processes, rather than just memorising them.

In order to help you out with all your ICT papers, we have compiled some easy to understand and yet effective IGCSE ICT revision notes in the form of questions and answers. We earnestly hope that these notes aid you in your IGCSE Examinations.

In order to gain success in your ICT examination, you need continuously PRACTICE past papers and keep yourself ORGANISED.
