    Looking to do a Computer Science Course. A major part of my personal statement or essay, or whatever i may write depending on the university i will be going to, would be writing about my ambition for computer science and artificial intelligence. A great way to boost my chances would be to do some work experience at some company. Though that's the great thing about computer science, the fact that i don't have to work at a company. I could gain work experience through carrying out my own projects, and that would evidently showcase my ambition.But here is the problem, i'm stuck trying to figure out something that would exhibit my enthusiasm.
    Any brainstorms on any thing i could create. Maybe something related to gaming?

    What is it about artificial intelligence that you find interesting? And have you had a go at implementing your own version of artificial intelligence?

    I wouldn't fret too much about getting onto a course. Sadly, there isn't a surge of people breaking down the doors of most CS departments.

    Are you doing philosophy at A level? You could say that that led you to research the philosophy of AI which led you to thinking about programming it, and that is very plausible compared to "lol yeah i have a passion for cs like AI n stuff"

    For something related to gaming you could just code your own game. If you want to show serious interest in AI you can look into neural networks and how they work and maybe create your own simple one (there's tutorials online). Other than that there's websites and mobile apps and all that but many people do those.
