I was corrected today. There is an A-Level course for Computing and I managed to find a couple of places offering it around the UK. However, I found a disturbing article about the decline in A-Level Computer at the BCS.
The conclusion of this article is that computer science is boring. It is outdated and irrelevant to the students of today. However, games programming must be interesting to them, but so many barriers are erected before the students get anywhere near us.
