    I am in year 11 and want to partake in computer science A level. My school does not have the course of Computer Science available but one of my teachers (who is familiar with computer science and A levels) suggested I learn languages in my free time and I would be able to do A level Computer Science.

    I am relatively confident in JavaScript and am looking to familiarise myself with another language. I need to know how many languages I should learn and, if possible, which ones would be the most beneficial for me to learn.

    I just want to mention, you already know a ton more coding than I do, and I'm off to study Computer Science (at Cambridge - just to emphasise the point) next year.

    It depends what you're into. I was personally into the theoretical/ mathematical side of Computer Science, so that lead me down a specific path. So, maths, hardware, web design, game design, general software development etc - where would you like to explore first?

    Ah of course, knew somebody would moan.

    It's anonymous, so not really bragging. Plus I'm giving him a boost of confidence by comparing, saying he's done more than me, and I'm doing okay.
