I was wondering if anyone could give me some good points to put into a personal statement for computer science/computing. Any tips or examples would be really helpful thanks. I'm quite desperate

What have you done related to computer science? Read anything? Programmed anything? Watched anything?

The only real point of advice I have is don't just use all 4000 characters talking about programming languages and apps you've developed. Computer science is a subset of maths, and as such has an incredibly large amount of theory involved. Mix up the programming aspects with talk of deeper questions, read up about p=np, what are its implications. What are the implications and limitations of quantum computing. Things like this stand out a lot more than, "I made a brick breaker game in C and it was really fun".

Here's a basic plan which I used last year:

- Intro: Why are you interested in the course?
- Books/Lectures
- Work experience and extra curriculars linking
- Conclusion: Why are you the right person for the degree?
