Submission + - Exam board deletes C and PHP from CompSci A-levels (theregister.co.uk)

VitaminB52 writes: A-level computer science students will no longer be taught C, C# or PHP from next year following a decision to withdraw the languages by the largest UK exam board.
Schools teaching the Assessment and Qualifications Alliance's (AQA) COMP1 syllabus have been asked to use one of its other approved languages — Java, Pascal/Delphi, Python 2.6, Python 3.1, Visual Basic 6 and VB.Net 2008. Pascal/Delphi is "highly recommended" by the exam board because it is stable and was designed to teach programming and problem solving.
