The placement year is part of the 3 year course, so to pass the course i have to get the CIS or CAS certificate, at the momment one of the tutors is going to get me information on what is required to obtain the CIS certificate at the end of the year

The problem is though, I have little to no programming skills, im at the start of learning C++ and know a tiny bit of VB, so for me to go into a placement year as a programmer wouldnt be very smart, i doubt any company would even look at my CV, lol…

Im wondering would there be any other simpler jobs etc in the game development sence… I think one of the main requirements for the CIS certificate is to have worked with some sort of moderatly advanced computer work… what they would class as advanced would be setting up windows or linux on a system then configuring it for the users needs…
Therefor i would need to come back and do a report on the placement year and talk about how i used the skills etc…
I hope this is making some sense to some of you, im lost as to what to do, and i really dont want to have to do a placement year with networking or operating systems…. :( If you want me to try and make something more clear then by all means ask me some questions, but for now tell me what you guys think…
