Birkbeck for my BSc?

I just turned 18, doing Maths, Physics and English Lit. at A2.

I am predicted...

A - English Lit.
B - Maths
C - Physics
n/a - EPQ

Anyway, I'm applying to do CompSci at uni and, considering my predictions have made a list.

Reading - ABB
Sussex - BCC (I'm part of their widening access scheme)
Leeds - CCD (incl. foundation year)
City - ABB

For my 5th choice, I've been looking at Birkbeck, but I'm wondering if it's a good choice for someone like me (raised in UK, linear education, 18yrs old); I've heard they're ideal for people taking a non-linear path into higher education.
Could anyone possible weigh in here? How reputable are they? Should I apply all the same?
Thanks!! :P
Birkbeck is designed for older students and part-timers, and most of its classes are held in the evening.

For a BBB / 120 points choice look at
Bournemouth - https://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/study/courses/bsc-hons-computer-science
Middlesex - https://www.mdx.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/computer-science
UWE (Bristol) - https://courses.uwe.ac.uk/G400/computer-science
Nottingham Trent - https://www.ntu.ac.uk/course/computer-science
etc

Thanks, If not Birkbeck I'll probably apply to Brunel or Greenwich.
If you'd shortlist Sussex, Reading and City, how about Royal Holloway, Goldsmiths, Kent, or Leicester?

Hi, I am currently deciding between City and RHUL, looked at Goldsmiths but wasn't too into it, Kent looks good but it's a little further from me than Sussex or Reading, even though they are all just outside London. I decided to only apply to one uni where I would need to stay in accommodation, and Leeds fits the bill for me.
Thank you!
For computer sci, City and RH is at similar level. RH should be slightly better, but it's in a quiet place near Surrey, some people may be bored by the place (I am not :biggrin: :biggrin:). Anyway, good luck! :smile:
