Are you applying for ICT or Computer Science?? Because the skills needed are different.

Yeah sure, you need commercial awareness skills and you need problem assessment, project management etc. Basically things that enable you to work in a team.

You could mention the area of human- computer interaction because that's a large part of it and has a huge paycheck in a job. XD Also report writing is a huge skill, I had to write over 20,000 words of reports for my AS level qualification so that is needed. Also, in the personal statement, say that you have an understanding of the commercial realities affecting organisations due to ICT, for example, uses of databases in a company. Have a little mess around with Microsoft Access and try to design a database, Universities love it when you do some independent research and extended reading.
