    I have very basic python knowledge (finish codecademy/codingbat level) and HTML/CSS.
    What's the best way to put this on my PS, or is it better to not put it in at all?

    Also, is there anything I can read/do within the next few months to have a better statement?

    Thank you!

    This is my opinion so I don't know whether it's worth it or not but I would spend the next few months learning a bit more python or learning a little bit of coding for other types of code e.g. HTML , JavaScript. That way you could say you have a basic understanding of a variety of different codes (this can come in very handy) or you could put that you have a large understanding of the python coding language.

    http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/admissions/un..._to_avoid.html and http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/admissions/un...statement.html are worth a read (even if you're applying to other universities - this is great advice for any CS application).
