I did research and I could not find anything.

I was wondering if anyone knew any Computer Science competitions (except for BIO) or work experiences I could apply for?

Thanks

You dont need work-experience for a Comp Sci degree - you do need to be able to show that you are interested in the academic side of this subject area. You need to explore topics outside your A levels so that you can show that 'I am especially interested in ..... and I have read ........ and watched on online lecture by ...... and I think .....' etc.
