    Is it worth doing this before doing a Computer Science degree? It doesn't look complicated and I was thinking about doing it as it would give me another thing to took about on my personal statement.

    Yeah it's not the best reason for doing it, but is it worth it?

    It's not a fantastic industry cert (mainly for the reason you gave; it's not that hard), but it does separate those who have it from those who don't. It's worthwhile having, if you have the time and money then go for it - if nothing else it should look pretty good on your CV for when you apply for your placement.
