I need advice on deciding where to go. At Kings i would end up doing Computer Science whereas Brunel - Economics. I am not so much into CS but already know alot of the stuff which i will be covering in modules within CS, I am more persuaded to go there because of the great reputation the uni has. As for Economics, i dont know much about it but it is more related to the industry i want to work in (Accountancy/Trading/Banking/ etc). Which would be the best option considering the fact that i want to end up working in finance?

KCL.
I don't think an eco degree from Brunel would help for something like finance/IB...

But what ever you prefer tbh.

Dude sadly i don't know much about economics so i can't answer that, but i've heard that to get into Investment banking/Finance you should aim for atleast 1 of the top uni's.

I'd still persuade you to go kings, based on reputation, unless you find brunel better for you.

Sorry i can't give you a thorough answer.

In reality its a choice between a uni you don't want to go to or the course you don't want to do..

I know this sounds harsh.

It is. Go to KCL. You'll have a better chance in life if you do.

I know C++/VB and a bit of Java already so coding is not a problem. I really want to know is a Brunel degree a waste of time.

It is if you just end up with a 2.2 at the end of it LOL. But you can easily get a job at the big4 or work in financial institutions (forget goldman sachs, though)

A quick question: is Brunel better than Queen Mary? like which is more reputable?

also how easy is it to get an offer from Kings college if you get BCD/BDD for your AS levels?

I'd say Brunel and Queen Mary are pretty much similar going by their entry requirements, but i heard Queen Mary's Mile End campus is a ****hole.
