So im doing a foundation in computer science but it turns out that no one has done any coding, the first second year guys are barley my equal in coding...im sure their maths and problem solving and ability to write reports is better though, just no one has written code, strange huh?
I've actually heard this is quite common. I can't say for your country, but a little while back I was searching all around in colleges and talking to advisers a each one and many of them asked me if I have done any programming, I had, and they were all very surprised it seemed, they said a LOT of the people they talk to about going into programming courses don't even know what it is exactly, and I also downloaded a video of a MIT lecture and I don't exactly remember how many but maybe only 3 or 4 had done code before. So while it is strange, I knew about it.
You are actually the outlier if you live in a similar demographic skew as I.
