Why Computer Science?: being able to discover topics such as computational complexity, artificial intelligence, biometrics and machine learning and being able to write programs to control robots and stuff fascinates me.

what do u think? would that make me get offers from my unis, do i have a high chance or low? especially for imperial and UCL

Name: Andy
Favourite food: Noodles. Any one of em'
University choices: Oxford, Imperial, UCL, KCL, University of Edinburgh
What subject(s) are currently studying?: Maths, Physics, Economics and Computer Science
Predicted A2 grades: A*A*A*A (Maths, Physics, Economics, Computer Science)
AS grades: AAAA
GCSE grades: 3A*5A (quite underwhelming compared to almost everyone in TSR :/ but this was the "best" in the school I attended for my GCSE)
Why Computer Science?: It's a fascinating subject that I found myself enjoying studying it. The most enjoyable part of CompSci is without doubt the programming bit - it's just so cool to be able to create and build up solutions to a problem with different methods of solving the same problem! And you can test whichever methods just to find the most efficient one (or the most eye pleasing or "cool" ones) to tackle that problem - quite fun sometimes. I love technology and being able to understand the principles behind how they work is really exciting. That's why I chose Computer Science, because it was the obvious choice for me

Name: Bhavik
Favourite food: KFC
University choices: Birmingham, King's, QMUL, Royal Holloway, Brunel
What subject(s) are currently studying?: Maths, Physics, and Computer Science
Predicted A2 Grades: A*AB (Computer Science, Maths, Physics)
AS Grades: ABB
GCSE grades: 3A* 6A 1B
Why Computer Science?: It's one of the few subjects I think where you can be creative but be forced to follow certain rules, and somehow it is exactly this what interests me the most. The way we can design algorithms and use them for different purposes baffles me. Also, the growing field of AI is one I'm also interested in, because of the uses it has in the healthcare sector. In the end creating programs is all good, but if they're put to good use for a good cause, then it's really worth it. Finally, who wouldn't love a job that you can do from home xD

Is a link to data released by UCAS which shows the total number of acceptances for each university in each subject type.

I hope this is useful
