    Well, I missed maths at A-Level by a grade (they wanted B, I got a C) and they still accepted me. It was a couple of years ago, mind you.

    They could probably accept you if you are taking Maths at A-Level.

    Course: Not too difficult in my opinion but very high workload, you'll have to put in a lot of effort to get a 2:1. Lots of exposure to different technologies and programming areas.

    Teaching standards: Quite high, it sort of gradually eases you into the more complex things but there's a lot of resources to help. There's open hours and drop-in sessions where you can get extra teaching if you want, towards the exam period there's surgeries as well.

    Tutors: A lot of the tutors/lecturers are very good and helpful.

    Facilities: Plenty of free computer rooms for you to do your work. They recently refurbished some new computer rooms as well, there's free rooms in every building so you'll never find yourself lacking of a free computer to do your work on. There's also a library with 2 floors filled with computers (4 extra floors for silent study) so again, you'll always find free space to do your work.

    Overall environment: Not so amazing, you get a lot of chavs in the area and it smells of weed most of the time. It's not the worst though, the building itself is nice and they've done up the entrance so it looks more appealing. Very diverse university with a lot of societies and they also have their own sports hall too.
