    If you did not take computer science as a gcse can you take it at a level? One of my IT teachers only took A level maths and not computer science at gcse or a level and had a degree in software engineering.

    The answer is yes.

    Depends on where you are planning to study it, *Most colleges I know will let you do the A level without having done the GCSE as long as you have at least a grade B (sometimes an A) in GCSE Maths.

    I imagine its entirely possible, im an old fart and my school was terrible, GCSE in ICT wasn't even an option for us.

    Yeah, most are fine because GCSE Computer Science is a new thing pretty much. I've got a revision guide coming for the GCSE stuff so I'm all caught up for A-Level.
