What are 'average' GCSE grades like for people studying computer science at uni.

I thought it might be a bit of fun to post your GCSE grades and the uni you are studying CompSci at.

Similar GCSE grades to what I'm expecting. I'm expecting A*A*A*AAAAAABC. Hoping to get similar A levels to you as well. (at least A*A*A)! Hopefully in 3 years time I'll be off to Durham or Warwick!

A word of advice do well in your AS Levels I don't know about people in schools on the mainland but my year people think AS-levels are time to be slack and do whatever they want. DO NOT RELY ON REPEATS, these mess up you're revision for A2 exams. I know a person who repeated lots of his AS results but thereby his A-levels results suffered as I was sure he was capable of at least one A* but he got straight A's - still good I know but he could have done better if he had of nailed the AS-level first time around.

I personally think it was because of my AS-Level results I was offered a place even without an interview or test. BTW I got AAAA in my AS-Levels

Looks like my predicted grades are fairly similar to everybody else's grades in the thread. I'm expecting:
Maths: A*
English Language:A*
English literature: B
Biology:A
Chemistry:A
Physics:A
History:A*
Music:A*
ICT: A
Religious studies: C (already done a year early)

That gives me 4A*'s, 5A's, 1B, 1C

I'd like to study at A level: Maths, Further Maths, Computing, Physics(AS)

Provided I get good enough grades in my a levels. Eg A*,A,A or above I presume this should be good enough to study at a university such as Warwick,Durham,Manchester,Birmin gham etc.

I have looked at java programming a bit there are plenty of pdf books on java and some of the pdf books are on warwicks reading list here. I don't know about buying books though u might be better off waiting till u get there- Until your course teacher tells you the books you will really need, just my thoughts anyways.

Btw fix your post by adding "[/QUOTE]" (no quotes) to the end of my quote

Yes AAA should be good enough to get into the unis u mentioned above. Although some like warwick wanted me to get A*AA (A* in maths) if I didn't have FM but I did so the grades I needed were AAA
