Hello everyone, I have always wanted to do Computer Science at uni and a lot of unis need A level Maths which I don't have, although unis like Aston don't require maths at A level all they need is a grade 4 in maths. But the thing is that how much maths is there in comp sci in Aston? And would it be hard for someone who didn't take maths at A level and is just really bad at maths in general? If anyone goes to Aston and does comp sci please let me know because I'm going through a crisis right now of what I want to do in the future.

I would note CS is more than programming and a lot of those other areas are necessarily mathematical. If you struggle with or don't enjoy maths it's quite possible you will find a CS degree to be a similar experience.

Anyone can learn to program, and you don't need a mathematical background to do so - you could also do so while studying many other, non mathematical degree programmes. You may well even be able to take programming modules on another course, not taking the rest of the CS content but just the programming stuff.
