    I'm 25 and thinking of going to uni and studying Computer Science. I haven't worked in IT or anything like that. Just wondering what sort of stuff I need to know before I start? I know a little about computers, I have an interest but never done anything about it until now.

    Any advice?

    You need to know that CS and IT have about as much in common as an apple and a banana. You also need to be fairly good at maths.
