    Hey. so im starting uni but will be studying computer science (undergrad) However at Alevel I studied economics, business, and maths and got 3 A grades. I want to persue a career in comp science but have no experience of coding or anything to do with computers. Will i find the course too hard or do the uni start everything from scratch. Thanks

    CompSci in universities assumes a basic understanding of computer systems. If you literally only use a computer for email, Facebook and Microsoft Word - you might struggle. The modules and course overall builds on your already existing knowledge of computers and if you don't have it you will feel out of your depth. If you've done anything more advanced then you will have a good head start.

    When you say a career in Computer Science, what do you mean? CompSci is not a career as such, it's a discipline.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
