I hate my course

I'm starting to think I hate my course. It's always miffed me, but now it seems like I am growing a passionate distain for everything to do with it.

Computer Science


  • Computer Scientists
  • All the maths
  • Badly taught lectures
  • Badly organised modules
  • Strangely chosen exams
  • A handful of ugly, dishevelled lecturers with a distain for students
  • A building that's not as nice as the maths department
  • Exam timetable
  • A course that tries to cater for so many people it's guarenteed to irritate everyone
  • The directionless nature of CS
  • 100% FOFO instruction method


That is all

Computer science has taken my interest in computing and dropped it from a great height, so that it falls and shatters, mixing with the remnents of my broken dreams. If they ask me to resit this year, I'm very likely not to be a University student next year – I don't think the pain of my course is worth the bit of paper at the end.

I have gone from liking the idea to disliking my course, to disliking everything involved with my course, to disliking computer scientists, to disliking computers. I want to get my own restaurant or something now. Even then, I'll cringe when I have to use the LCD till.

I should have done Flower Studies or something.

  1. Pretty much sums it all up. I think everyone feels the same.

    DCS is a dump. There is no space to do work, those IBM computers are completely shit, and we must be the only department without TFTs. Or a wifi hotspot. Both of which the the Maths department has. We're the Computer Science department for god's sake, where is all our equipment?

    And of course the exams this year are a nightmare. 11 exams in 13 days, I've had to do all nighters for most of them, which has destroyed me.

    Anyway, time to revise…

  2. Hm, DCS hasn't changed then. I fled to WBS in the 3rd year – CMS… . Relatively speaking a blessing.

  3. We should unite, and take the degrees from the rich and give them to the oppressed masses.

    Rise up!
