It's ok well when in my year it was BBB and i got AAD and got in automatically so they are flexible and my friend did terrible (hes doing bio but still) and they offered him a place on the course he wanted if he did a year before starting that course.

I THINK that the minimmum is actually, BBB, if i recall the prospectus correctly.

The ABB offer is for MComp or Comp with a year in America or Aus. Otherwise the prospectus says it is BBB.

As someone who's just graduated from the Computer Science course, I would say not to worry about getting books in advance. You'll be told the books you need in the first couple of lectures. They're all available in the book shop on campus, but you'll save loads if you look at places like Amazon marketplace and go second hand. They're also all in the library.

I'd also recommend checking out if you really need all the books. Some books like the MS Access one I bought in the first year were used very, very rarely. For example I paid £20 for the Access book and read 2 pages of it in the whole unit.

nastynas: I'm starting Computer Science at UEA this year. I was offered BBB but got BCC yet still got my place (probably as each grade was just a few marks off the higher ones). Soo, yeah. They seem flexible-ish.

As for the information I received, I only got the one letter and freshers booklet too. If you look on the website http://www.uea.ac.uk/sci/scinew/ug2009/cmp it has a lot more info including a possible timetable for the first few days
