Hi @raincloudd9

Congratulations on your offer at Kingston! I think I might have responded to you a few months ago about your decision for picking a uni and you where thinking about Kingston as your firm choice. If this was you what has changed your mind?

I think you need to consider whether you are willing to take the extra time to re-sit or if you want to start studying computer science at university now. It is a tough decision, maybe you need to look at what your priorities are and deciding factors and see which university is meeting them.

I personally think a foundation year can be great for getting ready for university level work it is a great bridge between university and what you are currently studying.

Good luck with your decision!
