I leave sixth form next year and I'm thinking about taking a CS degree course in the UK and I have a few questions.
Is maths essential? I mean I'm numerate but I've forgotten all of the clever factorisation and trigonometry crap since GCSE maths.
What do Computer Science teachers look for? I hear they get ........ed off by people who think it's just about programming languages. I like making structures and trees and tables, and generally figuring out how to make problems easier to solve. Is it slanted more in that area?
What are some good university CS courses in the UK? I doubt I'd get into cambridge or anything, but what are the good, low-requirement ones?
