Is it a good course, and given that I don't have the cleanest IT record is it possible for me to make a go of it?
The management side is more my sort of thing though.
What is the possibility that I can change to economics in my 2nd year if I get a good 2:1 or higher?
Anyone here going for comp science? Is it a forgiving course for those of us who can't even programme. I'm just curious.

Go to Birmingham mate. You need to find out what is more important, the uni or the course.
I wouldn't count on being able to change, like you said you aren't that great with computers so the likelihood of attaining a 1st class or high 2:1 (what you'll need to make transition) is pretty low. You don't want to waste your first year worrying about your 2nd year.

Alot of comp sci courses are equipped for "beginners" in the programming sense, check the prospectus if you're unsure about yours.

But John here wants a 1st class degree, I believe one should study what he knows and I think John likes Economics.
Do you really believe a beginner can attain a 1st class? Whats more can you?lol just kidding

Yeah, nice one.
I would reveal my Economics UMS score but you would accuse me of showing off. Then you'd probably have to say you beat me by one point (probably a lie), so I'll leave it.

:rolleyes:
Of course I have the advantage of having the score printed on my statement of results, whereas there is a high possibility that your good score is just a figment of your imagination.
Ahwell, we'll both have to assume that each has beaten the other...

I do E-Commerce and Digital Business @ Nottingham (just about to go into second yr) which is almost exactly the sae as the joint honours course apart from the fact that i have more moduole options (..and dont get a joint honours degree :rolleyes: ).

The Computing part is aimed at complete beginers but does move along pretty fast when it gets going. as long as you go to/read all the lectures and make sure you understand them it shouldnt be too much of an issue.

Not sure about switching after a year, talk it over with your tutor when you meet them in september

Better economist that me you say...
Are you now? I wonder what evidence you have to support such a wild notion...none it seems. Nevermind, you may labour under this silly suggestion
if you so wish, I mean if that's what it takes to bring up that confidence level of yours....wow you must be seriously lacking in it.
May I suggest a self-help book of some kind...

Yeh thats true I probably am better. Stick to your programming techie freek. I mean a girl reading anything to do with computing has got to have a few screws loose. Stick to the sociology babe, it's actually sexier.
Oh, what is this book you suggest, I am willing to learn oh great one.

lol, oh my oh my, you really do have no self-belief do you Willy. Just stick at it, if you try kiddo, you'll make it in the end! and if you don't, well I'm happy to watch you take a tumble or two .
Ah this book, I have no titles to recommend, I was suggesting you may need to look into the possibility of buying "A" self-help book. I've never needed the use of such a thing in the past, nor will I require one in the future. :cool:
