Bash vs Other Programming Languages (eg Python or C)

Now obviously I realise that because this is a scripting unit, we are required to use 
bash to create solutions for the assignments, however in "real life" would it not be 
easier to create a Python or C program to do the task and then just call it from 

For example, I think I could create a solution to Assignment 2, Question 3 
significantly quicker & easier in Python than I did in bash. Now I realise I am much 
more proficient at Python than bash, hence I am wondering whether it is just my lack 
of experience in bash which makes it very cumbersome, or whether Python would be a 
better option?
