    I studied certain units in my college course that can relate to a computer science degree, should i mention them? Also do i talk like i have already finished the course or no as i have just started the 2nd year? I am also doing a project this year for the course, should i mention that as well?

    Sorry for all the questions, just don't want to **** up.... I am already using the how to make a PS tsr thread btw.

    you can enter unit titles into your ucas app, so dont list these in your PS.

    refer to these units if they are relevant and say why these units made you want to do computer science or why it has helped you gain CS skills if u get me

    you dont talk as if you finished the course. you only say what you've already done that has contributed to you wanting to do computer science. yes mention the project you will start if it's relevant and what you're hoping to find out.
