if you want to party most of the time, i dont think computer science is good for you. I know a few friends who does it and they are very academically capable but they have really struggled.

Yup, I agree. I fyou can't keep up with the work you'll get depserately behind. I know this first hand, but thankfully have almost caught up.

Take something like philosophy, English or media studies. They all have background reading, but with around 5 hours of lectures/week you should find it easy to fit in.

People like you really annoy me, trust me there is no place for you in the University of Manchester, unless of course its Manchester Met.

Computer science is about programming, logic, maths.

Any computer science degree requriring 160 points would be not worth much, my course is 220 points and its not considered as good as computer science.

If you just want to party then go traveling or somthing, many people have to get them selves into stupid amount of debt just for people like you to party.

Yep exactly, I am doing Multimedia and Internet Technology and that requries so much work at home. Computer related course require a lot of effort and are not suitable for clowns.

you need to be logical too, something that you cant study for. I know many very academic people who really struggle computing programming etc

hehe yes that thought did go through my mind. The Met does tend to have a reputation of being more about partying than studying.

The Wolf - Yes you do need to be logical but you can learn it to a cetain degee, i.e when I first started programming my code was all over the place, I took so many short cuts, cheated on things, now I use a much more modular approach to it which makes my programs run much faster, easier to debug and more stable.

I think it depends on what level of programming you do, but logic is very important. I tend to be a bit slow at logic, however I do feel I am quite logical and this is getting better. There are people I know that are not logical at all and really struggle with basic stuff like making a simple Java applet to convert currency.
