    Wasn't sure where to post this, so please forgive me if this is the wrong place.

    I've finished my AS exams and I'm approaching the end of year 12, so I have been looking at potential university degrees I may want to do. I do Maths, Comp. Sci., Physics, and Chemistry at AS and will most likely drop Chemistry at A2. I'm kind of good at computer science and physics (expecting A grades in both of them), with Maths being my weaker (but not too weak) subject. So I found these two degrees:

    Queen's University, Belfast - BSc Physics and Computer Science
    University of Edinburgh - BSc Computer Science and Physics

    Would these degrees be looked down upon in comparison to a single honours degree in either field? Are these universities generally considered good universities? How are the length of these degrees the same as the length of their single honours equivalents (in either field)?

    Thanks in advance.
