Can I study computer science at uni without a maths a level?Watch
Hey guys, I just started my first year of college and I'm studying computer science, psychology and business studies. I want to go on to study Computer science at university but all universities require a maths a level, I was required to get a 6 in maths GCSE to study maths a level but only achieved a 5. Does anyone have any advice on how to get into a good university without studying maths a level?
However, most computer science degrees will necessarily involve some (often a lot) of mathematical content. If you struggle with maths and/or don't enjoy, you may want to consider other courses in related areas (such as IT) which are less focused on the theoretical basis of computing (which is inherently mathematical).
One of my friends was in a similar situation, sharing two of your subjects and getting a 5 initially. After resitting maths, he got offer from all the universities he applied for - including Nottingham and Newcastle.
