I initially wanted to do CS at Bristol. But I was rejected and offered Data Science instead. I never really considered the course but the modules look really interesting and I am strongly considering it.

I've also got an offer for Computer Science at Southampton. The course also looks interesting, however, I much prefer the city of Bristol over Southampton.

I really like maths and so I feel Data Science will be better in that aspect, but because CS covers a much wider range of topics it will give me a larger range of choices on what career path I want to take.

If anyone could provide any insight on either of these courses then thanks.

They said that it was too competitive.

I can’t see it anymore but I’m pretty sure on the dashboard it also said I will be unable to switch to computer science if I go.

maybe email them about the possibility of switching
are the grade retirements for CS higher than for data science?

Yea i'll probably email them and see what kind of possibilities there are for switching course.
Grade requirements are essentially the exact same, both A*AA, I recieved a contextual offer of AAB
