Retro HNC Delivery Example
This illustration mimics the 2005 HNC as much as possible for a one year, revised HNC in order to demonstrate how much work would be involved in a “straight swap” transition between the two.
The substantial changes to core units one should be aware of are that Computer Architecture 1 ( DH2T 34 ) has been replaced with Game Technology and Object Oriented Programming has been replaced with Structured Programming. Where centres are required to include object-oriented concepts beyond the scope of the Structured Programming unit, there is still scope in the options to include it either from the HND core unit, or from one of the other options such as Event Driven Programming.
The remainder of the core units from the 2005 HNC have been included as options, though it is strongly recommended that centres considering such a path replace ITAS 1 with 3D Level Design where possible.
