    I'm in the first year of a Computer Science degree, just wanted to know if securing a IT or Computing-related placement with my grades is achievable.

    Please be realistic. I honestly have no idea when it comes to things like this.

    Module 1 : 85%
    Module 2 : 81.1%
    Module 3 : 70%
    Module 4 : 76.65%

    Thanks

    Depends entirely on the university. Some degrees have a laughably TINY amount of maths (to the point where it should be called an IT degree) and some have LOADS of it.

    Check the prospectus of individual universities and see what modules are on offer

    Depends on the course really. Courses like mine have a respectable amount of maths content. I had an entire module dedicated to maths.

    Aha I see ! Thank you ! I do it for alevels but I don’t do maths. I’ve gotten offers from Newcastle and Liverpool but their modules don’t look like it involves too much maths in it

    Your grades are fine.

    If you have strong technical/programming skills alongside those marks you definitely have a good chance of getting a placement/internship.
