Computer Science degree helpWatch this thread
Long story short, I'm taking completely irrelevant A-Levels as I thought I'd be doing Law as a degree but I've done a full 180 and changed my mind. I don't want to resit Year 12 so these are the options I'm considering: (context: studying English lit, history and criminology, predicted around A*A*A-A*AA at the moment but that's only based on essays and exams I've already done).
-Apply to Kent which does not require A-Level CS or Maths/FM, but does not have a foundation year so I'd presumably be at a disadvantage (could possibly try and catch up on a level maths in the meantime and do my EPQ in a related subject?)
-Apply to places like Loughborough which do require Maths but have a foundation year.
I'm also shadowing the IT teachers/department at my school for a week in July and trying to teach myself as much as I can about programming in the meantime.
Advice would be great - I've kind of posted about this before but I've now narrowed down my options and am hoping I'm not being too hasty lol.
Don't assume you need to bin the subjects you're taking at A Level though; nothing you learn is ever wasted - there are some interesting joint degrees for example CompSci & History, or since you're interested in Criminology you could look into some Cyber security options. I saw a games developer advertising a job that needed someone with knowledge of historical cultures and economic systems to help build a realistic MMORPG. The world is your lobster!
