    Hello everybody,
    I am considering to apply for computing undergrad degree. Many universities state as minimum requirement math+science subject grade on the leaving exam as an minimum entry requirement (also for the relevant international requirements, since i am not British). Unfortunately, I have only math. Does it mean there is no use in applying to these universities? Or there is chance that the uni will consider other things related (I have a strong professional record with computing) and I should give it a try?

    Thanks!

    If they say it is required or essential then they are very unlikely to accept you without it, unless you have a good reason for not doing science - if your school didn't offer it, for example.

    Thanks. So it means I have no chance to enter this particular program at this particular university, now and forever?

    They might take your relevant professional experience into account. The best thing to do is contact them and ask!
