From an email from the University of Cambridge, stated was the opportunity to study more A Level study and equivelent for a 'considered' application to Trinity Hall.

This would be a foundation year and A Level mathematics at A.

This is not a rather hard achievement.
Although Cambridge has stated an interview 'would be good' to divulge into this matter further and learn more of relevant experience.

This would mean the a refusal of UEA- BSc Computing Science and the University of Sheffield- BSc Computer Science and foundation year courses from a UCA application.

The top league university of the two is Sheffield and they require a foundation year, which is 1 year of additional study for their course.

A foundation year course is a course which consists of various modules 'roughly equivalent to A Levels'.

A foundation year and A level mathematics would be considered, but why not two years of study when the second year would be two a levels intensive, mathematics A Level and another related A Level. This would be especially good for an application, which includes a previous BTEC national diploma and key skills and other qualifications (computer related).

Various computer experience and compute related qualifications within the field has allowed this to progress further. The main problem is GCSEs, which include 2 D and 1 E grades. This would mean at least one GCSE for an A*.

That would be a worthy achievement.

Unless there's a secret message hidden in there, I've missed the point entirely too :confused:

I can't see any question marks in that message. What is the question?

You got into Cambridge instead of Sheffield. Well, congratulations. However, I don't really care.

In reference.....

The question is would Cambridge be worth attending containing all the extra study mentioned above or would it be worth applying to Sheffield for a foundation year?

The foundatiion year is one year, roughly equivalent to A-Levels in Sheffield or as a back up in Bath university.

After studying the study of 1 or 2 years? That seems logical.

Why?

A repeat: After studying A Levels for one or two years to apply to Sheffield and UEA and Cambridge, that is logical.

You have to perform a sacrifice of the University of Sheffield? Was this Cambridge that emailed you or some crazy cult?

Sheffield and UEA would be cancelled as UCAS choices.

Cambridge would be the priority.

I think you should leave Cambridge out. If you can't get your message across adequately enough on here, you're bound to flounder in the interview.

P.S. I think that this could well be a troll, here simply to annoy us. :mad: Unless the OP just does not have English as his first language -- in which case he'd have to be excellent, I imagine, at computing to make up for the language deficit.

You are obviously of no help, enjoy continuing your undermining comments.
