    eh I have some questions I would like to ask, before I do so, I would like to tell you all I mean no offence!

    1)Why do you want to study at nottingham, when our local unis are just as good as it?

    2)If you find computer science boring, why are you spending so much money getting a degree on it?

    3)Imperial's good for comp. sci, try imperial?

    1) Most important for me would be Exposure and have a line of family members (parents, aunts and etc) who went there, I find it to be a tradition really. Some of my closest friends and relatives are there now.

    2) I was replying to a girl, in which most of them would consider it to be boring. Also, Who said It's 'my' money? :P

    3) Prestige is not the highest priority for me.

    People (singaporeans in general) usually head to cambridge/imperial to do maths lol
    That wasn't very nice You should be more encouraging than to laugh at choices.

    Not everyone is into Imperial, Mr. Boon Ping Lu of St. Andrew's Junior College.

    That is not exactly true. I know of people who go to Warwick for Maths.
    Warwick is VERY reputable for its Maths department (some view it on par or even better than Imperial!), though it may fall short in its general reputation as a whole since it is a young university as compared to the likes of Imperial and Cambridge.

    I suspect its overall ranking will rise over the years.

    Warwick is actually my third choice! I will be studying Maths and heading over to UK this year. How is the course over there? Is Warwick Maths as crazily hard as people depict on the forum?

    "People (singaporeans in general) usually head to cambridge/imperial to do maths lol"

    That's because if you can't get into the best University for Maths (Cambridge), then why not choose an easier University (Imperial) for Maths, with a London brand name so you can slack, but show off as well?

    Haha, then why did you choose Warwick in the first place?

    I thought Imperial Maths is not that much easier than Cambridge (though Cambridge still triumphs in terms of difficulty). They both have high workload and the course is almost equally crazy in both universities. The only difference is probably the more personalised tutorial system in Cambridge.
