Hi!
No responses to this thread yet so I guess I'll get it started!
I'm planning to go to abertay next year to study ethical hacking, I'm currently doing BTEC IT, I've got an offer but yet to accept it as I haven't actually visited the uni yet, so just holding out on that it's a long trek for me to abertay as I live pretty dang close to lands end so I'll be travelling from one side of the UK to the other!
What are you all applying for?

I'm currently in the process of finalising my application for their "BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking" degree; tidying up my personal statement as I type this and my assigned tutor is combining teacher references into one big report. It's killing me the fact that there is a set word count, because I will end up being 100 characters over.

I'm in S5 right now and currently studying Computing Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English all at Higher level in preparation.

Haha yeah I feel you on that one! I was about 200 characters over on my personal statement and had to go through shaving characters off one by one by changing words to a synonym that was like a character or two shorter! Hopefully all the work will pay off in the end!

:lol:

Hope everything goes well for you too. :^_^: Might end up bumping in to you in the future if we're both successful (and in your case if you accept or not), since we're both going for an ethical hacking place lol.

Hey, just posing a question:

How did they get in contact with you to let you know of a conditional offer anyways? Have you already submitted your UCAS application?

Congrats btw. :clap2:

I applied for a BSc in Computing and got a conditional offer. Applied to UCAS on the 17th and got an offer on the 18th so they were pretty quick.
