    Hı, yeah I'm wondering if it would be beneficial to the course to buy a laptop/MacBook? And if so, which one would be better suited for computer science. Also, I decided to take the foundation year as the lecturers told me the course is maths intensive and I haven't done maths for a levels, do you find the maths in the course difficult? I've got an A for GCSE maths so do you think taking the foundation year was a smart move or should I have gone straight into the first year?

    Mate did foundation year, best advice I can give you is IDK about CS in after years/ foundation was only windows and we used visual basic. He didnt do mathematics either, found it kind of hard, if you didnt do maths a level, he hardly revised but passed, as long as you go lectures your fine seriously, its not that hard. IMO Smarter move to go straight into the first year if you could have gone, if you messed up you could of re-took maths was not that hard and my mate did foundation maths.

    Oh Yeah he said take "Study Skills" seriously... like seriously so many people failed that
