I think you should ask the auckland university enrolment center about this. A really simple search on the Orcland Uni website rendered this result: http://www.auckland.ac.nz/uoa/ae-domestic-students

That's the requirement. I may be taking a couple of 101 CS papers as general eds but from what I hear from my friends who took/are taking it it's not too bad.

I think you are limited to only CompSci 111G for general education. Harder (and more interesting) ones such as CompSci 101 is not available as a GE option.

I found it quite challenging. Don't bother with computer studies, they teach you how to use a computer, email and word etc.

Do you don't need to know how to program, but you do need to have a logical and inquisitive mind, as well as a desire to 'get to the bottom of things' to see why something works/doesn't work.

I don't know what the official "requirements".

I can tell you that math is very important.
