    what are universities like Manchester, Bristol and Southampton looking for in their applicants for the Computer Science course?
    also, I have a lot of hobbies like reading, martial arts, piano and robotics. should i write about all of them or only about robotics, which is the most relevant activity? anything else that I could write about to stand out?

    Around 70% of your statement needs to focus on why you want to do computer science. This doesn't leave much space - maybe around 1000 characters - to talk about your extra curricular activities. So you might not have enough space to talk about all of the activities you'd like to mention.
