    They all seem normal, and by normal I mean they would rather go out shopping and clubbing than sit at home and do revision or watching weird dramas like I would - slightly extreme, but it gets my point across haha.

    However, they're all really friendly and appear to be quite relieved there are other girls doing the course haha. They are more interested in the ICT aspect though rather than the computing aspect.

    I have sat with the girls before and they'll be sitting talking about people's formal dresses, where as I'll go and sit with my guy friend's and we'll complain about how we dislike Java or something. So you'll fit in wherever you'll fit in really, you'll end up in the right group anyway I'm sure.

    My friend's at school were uh, quite different too, (in a good sort of geeky way) but I'm doing fine attempting to socialise with normal girls so you'll be sweet haha
    Thanks, this really has been reassuring .
    I definitely wouldn't enjoy engaging in conversation about typical female things(for prolonged periods of time, at least), though I think a lot of my problems with the majority of females is that I probably don't try hard enough and definitely don't come across as friendly to start with, which I'm trying hard to improve upon ^^.
    It's great to know there's guys that are on such courses that are fine with engaging in conversation with other females in a friendly manner too ^^.

      Same with me, I used to be such a tomboy, and I don't drink or anything either, so it's a bit hard for me to find girls who have the same interests as me! But there's probably another girl applying for CS somewhere thinking the same thing as you so don't worry.

      Just watch out for creeps, I haven't really encountered any though haha. My group of guy friends went to the same school as my boyfriend so I know they're relatively good to hang out with

      I have a BSc and MSc in CS. As an undergrad, there was roughly a 9:1 male:female ratio. Didn't bother me, I've always gotten on better with guys as friends anyway and I had a lot more in common with them. Something similar in my masters, in the stream of the course that I followed there was 7 guys and me.
