Applying for Computer Science



Applicants for Computer Science are required to take the pre-interview Test of Mathematics for University Admission (TMUA) at an authorised centre local to them (for a lot of applicants, this will be their school/college). A typical conditional offer requires A*A*A at A2-level. The Computer Laboratory publishes detailed information on the A-level requirements for each option. Briefly: single-subject Mathematics at A2-level is essential; Physics and Further Mathematics are valuable. The Computing A-level is not required, but it is a useful way to gain practical experience.
