    Hasn't your referee put your predicted grades in your application? What do you think your chances of getting DDD are?

    OH yh i am predicted DDM but Yh it’s possible for me to get DDD with a 60% chance, but I’ve done some comparisons and found out that the student rating for Middlesex is higher than goldsmiths which means that getting a degree in Middlesex is easier, but I would like other opinions on this decision

    In general Goldsmiths is regarded as a better university, but I don't know about CS specifically. Is the Middlesex offer 'unconditional if firmed'?

    Do you prefer the contents of one course over the other?

    What is Middlesex's offer if you put them as your insurance?

    So you should easily achieve that.

    I think it comes down to which course you prefer. Have you visited both unis?

    If your preference on university is based on ranking, isnt it obvious that goldsmiths ranks a lot higher than middlesex overall...?

    But it doesn't for the OP's course. However, I agree with part of your previous comment - that Goldsmiths is better known for more creative subjects.

    Hello!

    I am currently studying at Middlesex and I am loving my time here
    It is an extremely friendly community and there are people coming from 145 different nationalities. There are also around 80 different societies, sports and jobs on campus!
    We have a very active students' union from the first year of your degree. There is also a lot of support, from essay writing, to well-being.
    The lecturers are also very knowledgeable and are all working or have worked in the field.

    What course are you going to study?

    Have a great day

    Let's be fair Middlesex University, I'd want to go to Hendon for a bagel, but you can get better jerk chicken in New Cross.

    It really depends on what you want to do, abubakar.a1

    Goldsmiths is a smaller university (though very diverse and inclusive) and our computing department is strong in areas like computational arts, computer games and business computing.

    The feel of the areas is also quite different, so it may be worth dropping into the campuses and seeing how you feel.

    I hope you choose the course that's best for you!
