    I've applied for BSc and MSci in Computer Science at King's. Got an acknowledgement and the login details on the 2nd of January. From what I've seen on here it looks like King's haven't given many offers out yet.


    I was thinking they'd start giving out decisions after the UCAS deadline, hopefully won't be too long now.

    You applied quite a bit earlier than me then. Took me a while to get my application and statement right.

    I emailed King's about my C in GCSE Mathematics and they said they'd include a condition for AS if they make an offer.

    Yh applied in mid November i think.
    They gave the person in my class a offer for DDD with Distinction in specfic units and C in english language (he is currently retaking his english). He had an A in gcse maths though.
    And ooh right, i'm not taking AS level maths...so i might be in trouble lool..whereas i think you shud be fine as long as you get the grade the ask for in AS maths. But i'm taking all the specific units they ask for as well as already have obtained distinctions in two of the compulsory units last year: computer systems and information systems.
    Hope everything goes well

    Yeah I did most of the units they ask for last year. Working on Systems Analysis and the Mathematics for IT units now.

    Before I mentioned my AS level they did say that a condition would be given for a B in GCSE Maths.

    If they do ask for GCSE in your offer you might be able to re-sit it privately somewhere if you're willing to pay for the cost of the exam.

    Just posted in a similar thread in the CS & IT forum - thanks for your patience so far. As wesk predicted, after the on-time application deadline, the process of making offers starts to pick up pace - it's all hands on deck now reading personal statements, references, syllabuses, .... Meanwhile, try not to bite your fingernails too much .

    Got an offer from Cardiff University yesterday for D*D*D*. Only waiting on the two courses at King's now, hope they'll make a decision soon, feels like I've been waiting for ages haha!

    Will definitely be firming King's if I get the chance, need to look into the living costs and accommodation a bit more though.
