Re: Not enough people studying for A-levels

I'd proffer cost as perhaps the biggest hurdle back when A level computing was first offered at my local college.

We spent too much time using punch card and paper tape machines, when really these items should have been handed over to the history department, long ago.

But in agreeing with you, yes, I laughed out loud when I started my university course to find my IT tutor couldn't even turn on the computer and it was left to me to nurture the class in the mysterious ways of BASIC, DB, Visicalc and other such unnatural phenomena.
