Well there's your problem. You can't buy them from CPC.

So does that mean CPC had listed them at some stage? I thought it was *only* RS and Farnell, the latter, like CPC being a part of the Premier Farnell Group.

Did you get an earlier one of 16/4/12? If so, that's the correct one and the later date is a mistake.
Also note that both dates are actually 'week commencing'...!

Yup...
I presume that since they are part of Farnell they got included. They certainly seemed happy to take orders (and by the sounds of it, were inundated with them)

I'm not expecting one until March of next year, but that's mostly based upon an estimate of when I might order one after all the hype has died down. :-)

as ICT became compulsory (at varying levels and initiatives) it became harder and harder to staff at our community college and that together with pressure from league tables means it ws phased out 4 years ago IIRC we are starting to teach GCSE computer studies again from next year which is a welcome relief from the many flavours of ICT diplom btec and gcses

league tables went some way to knock computers studies at A level on the head, students found the technical side hard I remember trying to teach them algorithms for shellsort, quicksort and bubble sort with bits of card cos visualisation helped the same for recursion and interupt handling even then some still struggled - they thought it was going to be messing around building pcs etc (which we did a bit of for the hardware side) - we taught it for about 5 years with me (physics specialist) + another guy (ICT specialist) - results were ok but not spectacular we had 40 kids (out of 280) for a couple of years and enough to run a group (20ish) for the rest - we thought that the numbers were healthy but I moved back to engineering and physics and they got another ICT specialist to teach it :-(

I remember foxpro... I think we mainly used dbase at uni, along with a bit of ingres.

No, but I did A-level CS '91-93 and I think we had about 20 people in the class then, so across the whole country I expect there were a fair few.
But it was sort-of* interesting back then - there was more hardware diversity, and it was more about programming than it was the "how to type a letter" level which I think it all descended into not many years later.
* but easy. We used to work through stuff very quickly, to the point where we were permitted by the teacher to skip classes and bugger off into town rather than sit around thumb-twiddling.

No, that's A level ICT. A level Computing is fairly rare now, as it's hard. But we still get a fair few applying to us.

Mine in 1982 was called A level Computer "Science", not studies. It was pretty dry content as above, just around the time games consoles and home computers became big and were a world apart from paper tape and learning about random and sequential file access...
Lessons were spent in the first half hour yawning our heads off, and later in the second half slaying the aliens ;-)

There was a fair overlap if I recall... as part of our A level course we actually sat the AO level Computer Studies exam after year one. (AO being O level in standard but aimed at an older audience IIRC)

Did you have that book by Carl French? Seemed to be very popular at the time... the purple "Science" one, and a slightly thinner tgold coloured "Studies" one.

Yup! Both are still swimming about in the Loft somewhere. Should dig it out and have another go at those karnaugh maps :)
Don't quite believe the current cost of the book on Amazon - £46? (Amazon.com product link shortened)

I know. In fact I spent some time today advising a student to sign up for the BTEC instead of A levels.
