Indeed - this is what makes A-level ICT so darned tedious. However, looking at the new A/AS-level syllabus for 2009 examination, this seems to have been addressed - the course is clearly divided into two parts, with the AS-level part involving no coursework. Instead, you do smaller module-esque assignments, the output of which you then take in to the exam with you. This would seem to set AS-level ICT up as something really useful as an extra that could be fitted in around other A-levels, to give a student some knowledge of ICT for later in their career (and a few extra A-level points for university entrance always helps). Still completely unsuitable for anyone interested in going on to do computer science at degree level, though.
This has just reminded me of a thread on the OcUK forums. A guy refered to DOS as a programing language in a job inverterview .
