    Hi,

    Im currently an AS Student going into A2 and would like some advice with regards to applying to Durham for Computer Science.

    At GCSE I attained 3 A*'s (including Maths and Physics), 5A's 1B and 1C.

    At AS I studied: Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science.

    At A2 I will be continuing Maths, Further Maths and Computer Science.

    I hope to attain AAA to possibly A*AA Predicted for A2 with the A* in Maths.

    I have good work experience placements and I have coded in a variety of languages and have a genuine passion for the subject which is reflected in my personal statement.

    Given my grades and possible predictions of AAA do I have a decent chance of getting in?

    Thanks,

    Durham isn't known for being insanely competitive for CS, so yes I'd say you have a very good chance of getting an offer. Sounds like you have a very well rounded application, congrats!

    To be honest GCSE's matter the most at Oxbridge, most wont take huge notice to them unless your AS-levels are below what they want.

    If your personal statement is good and you do well in your AS levels, you should be offered a place.

    Thanks very much! One more question, I believe I may have to retake one or two maths modules but given that im still predicted the grades would I still possibly be considered?
