For anyone who's applying to do computer science this September at Leicester, just thought id give u a breakdown of what the course is like. I'm just about to finish my first year btw

So in the first semester (from October to December) you'll do four modules, which is programming fundamentals, mathematics fundamentals, computer architecture, and computing fundamentals.

Dw if you haven't done maths a level before uni, despite the content in the maths module is hard af, the lecturer is very good,

you'll also learn basics python programming language in the first semester ( for programming fundamentals modules), if you're reading this now i'd recommend learning it rn, because the lecturer is good, he's just an ******* sometimes.

in comp architecture, you'll learn about how computers work, processors, binary,denary etc

if anyone wants to know more about the modules, here's the link https://le.ac.uk/courses/computer-science-bsc/2021

in the second semester, you'll learn java programming language and you'll do another four modules

again if anyone has any questions about the other modules, just hmu

I plan to do Computer Science at Leicester this year... But is it possible to still get on the course if I don't manage to get the ABB needed... If I got ABC or BBC? Is there any way of still doing Computer Science? Is foundation year possible?
Thankyou

Also... What does it mean where it says they accept 2 AS level in place of one A level?
If I got AAB as my AS grades... Would it help if i don't reach the entry requirements?

100% because of what happened last year with a lot of people getting downgraded, they lowered the entry requirements to CCC on results day.

I got accepted with BBC, when the gov did the U turn, my grades went up anyways.

Tbh it really depends on how everyone does on results day
