Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Is it fair if I ask (just roughly) how much of a chance there is if I get in the computing science course? I just don't want to waste one of my 5 choices if there is not much chance for me to get in. I have 3A's - computing art and English, 2 Bs maths and graphic communications. I have a few hobbies and different experiences here and there

    From the undergrad CS page (http://www.gla.ac.uk/undergraduate/d...requirements):

    Standard academic entry requirements: S5 entry requirement = AAAA or AAABB. S6 entry requirement = AAAAAB (S6 entry requirements only apply to applicants who achieved the minimum S5 requirements and have been made a conditional offer.)

    Other mandatory requirements: Two science subjects, one of which must be Mathematics at Grade A or B, or alternatively Maths at C AND Computing at B or above. Please note that ICT is not acceptable as a substitute for Computing.

    You will be fine to apply, if you have any experience programming be sure to include that in your personal statement.
