Hi,

I was thinking about applying for a BSc Computer Science degree in 2020 and had some questions about the entry requirements.

I was reading the degree page (https://www.swansea.ac.uk/undergradu...-science-g400/) and noticed that the entry requirements were only visible on the international side (AAB-BBB), am I looking at the wrong page? Also, I noticed that with a B or above in EPQ I can get a reduced offer. Currently, I'm looking at my predicted (Comp Sci,Maths,Philosophy) at ACB or ABB. The C in maths is what worries me but I assume with the 1 lowered grade that it would be fine to apply with? Any responses are greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,
Alex

If you achieve ABC I wouldn't be too concerned.

Most universities accept lower than their required grades. You will probably be fine.

I applied Computer Science as my 5th Option

I achieved AAA in Biology chemistry and Mathematics A level.
I applied to BSc Computer science with Digital Technology Partnership- Degree Apprenticeship with PwC
I have an unconditional offer for standard computer science (without PwC) at Birmingham and am awaiting PwC to contact me about the rest of the process.

Can anyone give me an insight of what PwC look for at the assessment day, and how they select candidates for the PwC offer?

I have an unconditional for the standard course, not PwC partnership.
Birmingham uni sent me an email saying that if I were unsuccessful at any point, I would receive an offer for the standard course. I have achieved a levels. Therefore it would be unconditional.
