Recommended prior knowledge and skills
Access to this Unit will be at the discretion of the centre. However, it is recommended that candidates have prior basic knowledge in developing simple web pages using HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language) and/or XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Mark-up Language) as well as elementary knowledge of computer programming using high level languages. This may be demonstrated by the possession of any relevant NC Unit, such as, Computing: Programming in a High-level language: Fundamentals (SCQF 4) and other suitable HN programming units.
