    Hey Shaunnagha - I'm not doing Forensic Computing but will be doing Computer Networks - so should be based in the same place as you. Did you go to any of the applicant days?

    I'm going to be moving into my 3rd year at BCU in September. It's one of those courses where you'll learn a hell of a lot of interesting stuff, but it takes a while to get your head around it all. There's also a lot of Networking involved within the course.

    No, I haven't been asked to do any animations anyway. From what I've found, the 1st year is quite practical, 2nd year is a bit more theory based but it can get very hard at times - especially the law and networking modules.

    Cool, good luck Just as a heads up there is a lot of Maths involved so if you don't have one, you'd need a Scientific Calculator

    When you say a lot of maths, are we talking lots of formulas and things to figure out or is it more pick out the right numbers and the calculator does most of the work... If you get what I mean?

    In my first year, the Maths module was very similar to what you'd find at AS level - so it would be things like Trigonometry (Working out angles using calculators.) There's also Algebra, simultaneous equations and other Statistics such as Probability. The majority of Maths you'd find in other modules (especially Networking and Forensics) is converting numbers between Binary, Decimal and Hexadecimal. In the second year, you'll be working out the Modulus of really big numbers which can be tricky but I'm sure you'll be ok

    Thanks for that... The only one I can't really remember is simultaneous equations so I'll brush up :yy:

    haven't done maths like that in so long, might have to search for my books somewhere. The only things I can remember is hex, binary and matrices, so this could be interesting

    Hey insanelyfused! Think the course starts the following cuz 16th is welcome week. Don't worry about not knowing/meeting anyone... I've been struggling to find anyone on my course but I just figure it'll be more of a surprise when I get there.
