    Well the exam board they use is AQA so maybe you can search on the AQA website?

    AQA allows a choice of:
    Pascal, VB.6, VB.Net, Python, Java

    Hence the question, I've already started learning some languages but want to know which one to focus on.

    Thank you! One last question , Which version of visual basic do you use? The AQA spec says Vb6 or vb.net but afaik Vb 2010 is just a newer version of Vb.net which is a newer version of Vb.6.

    Can I still hand in my direct offer letter even if I missed the deadline? (21st Feb)

    I know there were still direct offer interviews last week so I think I could be able to hand it in without any problems?

    I have an interview for for Woodhouse tomorrow and im picking Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Religious Studies. What kind of questions would they ask me for those subjects because I have no idea what is going to be thrown at me. I picked them to do medicine and thats basically the reason for it, any tips I need to know?

    :O woodhouse do RE? , why are you doing RE btw? im curious, Im not 100% sure but I hear its blacklisted?

    edit: When I had my interview 2 years ago I was applying for bio,chem,math and psycho (applied for medicine as well). Essentialy people get asked different things. Some teachers bring up a current affair in your subject and ask you to comment on it, or solve a question, but something you wouldnt have neccessarily done at GCSE. Dont give up with they give you a hard question, they dont care if you get it right. My tips are just relax, be yourself because most of the interviewers will be very friendly and students too.

    Oh and some people did come in suits back then, but it was a minority. Dress casual smart.

    Hi ,Everyone
    I am current AS student at Woodhouse , studying , Maths, Physics, Chemistry and English Literature. I would say Woodhouse is a really good college -that is if you want to achieve well , the support is there for you and you can ask for help at any time. Just like any place it depends on the person ! But , I would defiantly recommend it and if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them

    Just remember start working consistently from the beginning it will pay off !!

    Hi, we're using VB.NET in general as we were all taught it at Woodhouse, but there are other options on the spec: C# and Pascal.
    In the second year I'm pretty sure you can use which ever language you feel most comfortable with.

    Are you sure? All this time I thought we were working in vb2005 since that's what the book goes through :/

    Not that it probably makes much of a difference

    Yup 100% sure we are using VB.NET in Visual Studio 2008.

    The book goes through VB 2005, Pascal and C# right... But the preliminary material is released in many more languages than this including Java, Python etc.

    Don't worry too much about it There's really not much difference.
