I think it has to do with the curriculum taught in the province. I know that I teach VB at the gr10 level. The vast majority of them are not looking to go "above and beyond" they are happy if their programs work. I know that a lot of schools don't even touch VB.

WEll java is really different , and if your willing to jsut learn some at home or teach yourself , you should be fine , most people who take grade 12 do really well , there to ones who actually were good at 10 & 11 , it will be no walk in the park , but if you lok carefully your school would probably pay for you to take your sun certification at hte end of the corse , its suposedly one of the hardest certifications to get but once you have it , it would look awsome on any resume

my teacher just said that i'm way ahead of the class and that it'll take some time, but i could easily manage it. i'm just trying to see if i should go for it or not..

don't even think of skipping java, since it's THE language 8) I think all first year CS uni courses are in Java Thinking

As this VB topic evolves into a VC++ vs Java debate perhaps this is a good place to bounce my ideas off people. I've been teaching C in gr12 and C++ in OAC for years. With the loss of OAC I've dropped the ANSI-C and went straight to C++. As Tony points out Java is used in quite a few Universities and it is gaining support in the workplace. I'm planning on teaching Java next year for gr12.
Homer - why do you hate Java?
Tony - why do you love it?

I have no problem learning java next year , what rocks is my school pays for any first try of certification , i get a shot at the A+ next year at the end of grade 12 engineering , I thnk java is pretty useful , but im not sure if il keep it up well it really depends what the university of ontario will teaches ( Where i would like to go ) , i think that they Do C++ , ohh and on ht er site the do Java aswell, so really both of those languages are useful
