    I'm predicting that I will get ABB at A Level. I was wondering what, in your opinion ,are the best universities with these sort of grades for undergrad computer science? I am primarily concerned with quality of teaching / reputation. Currently I'm looking at York and maybe Loughborough but I'm interested in what other people think.

    I would also consider Exeter, Royal Holloway and Surrey.

    My son was very impressed with Royal Holloway and with predicted grades of A*A*A* could potentially go for any of the Russell Universities but will be putting Royal Holloway down as his insurance choice. Visiting a University is a big part of the decision process. Don't just go by the league tables. It has to feel right.

    Loughborough would be a good choice but with your grades may not be an option.

    Pretty much any university is open to you unless it's the obvious top 5/10 (e.g london, oxbridge and odd ones like durham manch and birmingham

    York you would have to do interview and make sure your prepared
    I saw pretty much every uni in clearing for compsci this year so don't worry too much about getting in, more achieving the grades
