So I’ve firmed Computer Science at the University of Birmingham but I have to take a foundation year as I didn’t take maths at A-Level. I could’ve gone straight into CS at Queen Mary and could’ve even taken a year in industry. I ended up going towards Birmingham because it’s more ‘prestigious’ apparently .

Would I have been better off going to QMUL and doing that year in industry rather than going to Birmingham with a foundation year?

You've firmed your uni now, it's better not to think about this kind of thing. What did you insure?

Yeah of course! I just mean it's best not to fret since when you were firming, UoB sounded like the better option to you. If you're now leaning towards QMUL, check to see if they're in clearing.
I personally wouldn't worry about 'prestige' tbh, you have to enjoy your time there and then actually have chances of employment once you graduate. University prestige ends up meaning nothing if it doesn't give you the tools to help you do what you want post graduation.
