During my age in junior high school, I was only expecting HTML, CSS and all Adobe's series in Computer Science class.
Although back then I did some research regarding this field, despite the fact I was introduced with things like Java, Python, C++ and so on I was still somehow expecting simple code like HTML and CSS.
Talking 'bout computer science, some think it seems fun, some think it is not a job-guaranteed course.
When I came here into university, all of my expecations were all vanished.
My first year is all about creating from scratch through C++, no vector learning and all. Everything. From. Scracth. Like you develop your own function 100%. Oh, and why did my school teaches C++ instead of modern computer languages like Python or something more simpler like Java? C++ is the most fundamental language to learn to develop everything on your own. Once you manage to grasp C++ from basic to higher level, it's easier to understand the rest.
And, now I'm already in my second year, learning Java all on my own, database and sql language with lab sessions which sometimes I find certain terms quite confusing but with the help of lab and tutor, it helps me so much. I also learn data communication where it is more to learning computer networking like how computer communicate with other peripherals, cables and whatnots, I'm not gonna go deeper into that. Too, second year also means I have some more advanced knowledge of operating system like how it works and how we are going to make it work with coding and so on.
I am currently kind of busy with group assignments, upcoming tests and of course final exam that's approaching us all.
So if in high school if you were exposed to very basic level of computer and very basic coding, please don't expect such thing in university. Unless if you have had experience with programming language seminars or courses then yes they are likely to university course but some universities got their own standards and syllabus so not all universities are going to learn the same thing in the same way. We might learn the same thing but sometimes in different approach.
That's my update for today and I hope this will give you something to ponder upon.
p/s: If you're from matricualtion background pun, don't expect computer science in matrik sama macam uni cause based on my experience, syllabus matrik is veryyyyy veryyyy basic. For example, kalau kita amik lesen kereta kan, knowing the knowledge of something related-to-cars before amik test untuk license is the very basic thing. That's what I'm trying to say. (however, this is not to downgrade anything pun, just for your information sahaja with hope you'll struggle a lot if you're in matriculation cause u can! <3)
