    It's for Comp Sci, I haven't touched maths since GCSE.
    If you had a choice, would you take it up (its the full degree so cost is not an issue).

    What are the pros and cons?
    This is at a top 15 uni btw

    Do you also hold offers for courses without a foundation?

    And you have applied to others without a foundation?

    So wait and see what happens. Doing a foundation may be a good idea, but even if you don't you can still get additional support for maths at whatever university you go to.
