I need uni adviceWatch
I will hopefully be applying to study computer science at university next year. My first choice is to study at ucl since I live in london and would prefer to stay. However, I'm unsure whether I'd recieve an offer due to how competitive the degree is. I'm considering applying to a different degree (similar to cs, such as electrical engineering?) at ucl and applying to cs for the remaining four choices. Would this be possible? Which degrees are the closest to cs? Do you have any advice on writing a personal statement on two different degrees?
It a tough one. If CS is what you want to do then perhaps you have to accept not getting in at UCL. It will look odd that you apply for EEE at UCL and CS everywhere else. Hard to explain in your personal statement.
