Hey there! I'm applying for comp sci this year with 2A*s. Current apps are: Imperial, Edinburgh, Bath and Bristol (all require 1 or 2 A*s). I think it would be wise to have a safety option. Where would you guys recommend for me?

A few of my preferences: I care a fair bit about the location and social aspect (esp as a Londoner). Also somewhere where the teaching is engaging, I'm very into games design currently. Any questions, please do ask!

Hey!

When I was looking at universities, I made the most of Open Days, video tours and student life blogs to learn more about the location itself. Just like you, I cared heavily about the location (you're going to be living there for 3+ years, it's got to be somewhere you like) - in most cases I focussed on location first and then the course.

Try and look into things to do in the area, the distance between halls of residence and university buildings, night life, etc.

On the engaging teaching front - at university you'll be assessed via both coursework and exam. Different universities may use more coursework than exams whilst others may use more exams than coursework. If you're the type of student that performs better in one than the other, it may be worth playing to your strengths. All of that information should be in each university prospectus or on their website. If you have any queries, reach out to the universities you're interested in - they should be more than happy to give you more information.

Best of luck!
