I choose to believe this is a joke
Well...it's copy-pasta, but the original poster was dead serious.
I would actually take CS majors seriously if they still had to do this much math.
Delete Physics and Chem and it's perfect.

this desu... I've never seen so much shit crammed together, and I'm in CS
The problem is that I'm only predicted a C in Maths but an A in both my other subjects so all the universities I'm applying for don't require a high grade in Maths and are therefor not as Math orientated. I'm probably going to get an A in all three of my subjects so I can try to get into a better university but there's no guaranteeing it. Do you think employers will really look into what is involved in the course? The modules I posted are for Liverpool University which isn't a shit university and the entry requirements are still AAB
I'm going for Maths at Imperial and was predicted a bullshit B1 in maths (from Ireland) when I've had the entire course covered since before the MAT (in November)
Cant wait to get out of this shitty third world country.
>PH253 Philosophy of Mind
My predictions so far are AAABB and not only did my maths teacher predict a B, my physics teacher refused to predict before Christmas break and have kept putting it off so the application isnt even going in until tomorrow.
Fuck this place
Tfw somehow have an interview at manchester soon despite getting shit grades first year
5 A-Levels? You're set m8 I bet they'll practically be sucking your dick
If you didn't take that whole first semester in high school then you're more useful committing sepuku
What did you get and what are you predicted?
Got BBC first year and their site says you need AAA for entry. On my application I was predicted ABB then on our end of term report thing I was predicted AAA, idk why my teachers didn't put the better prediction on the application considering I sent it about a week before the reports
Was the A in Maths?
Its Ireland, I'm taking 7 but one is what we call "ordinary level" which is retard tier because Unis here only count 6 so people generally take retard tier in something to ease the work load.
Its AAABB before the physics grade, and I hope you're right, people always say "you'll be set, fucking 7 subjects?" but over here this is the norm so its strange to hear that.
academic CS:
>discrete math (set and graph theory)
>linear algebra
>Data structures
>algorithm analysis

if you want to study codemonkeying
>any class that has the name of a specific technology in the course name for any purpose beyond clarification
>>ie "Data Structures in C++" is ok, "Programming in C++" is not
>any class with the word enterprise in the course name

basically go tour the campus, if there are more brown undergrads than white, the CS degree is a worthless codemonkey degree.

>classes for old people and people learning to use the internet for the first time
If you want to know if your CS program is good, look at the course requirements for the top rated CS programs, e.g. Univ of Washington, University of Waterloo, CMU, Univ. of Michigan, etc. These are institutions that Google, Apple, Amazon, etc. directly recruit graduates from.

Doesn't Imperial list having an A* in both maths and further maths as being minimum entry requirements?
