Currently I am studying AS maths, economics , computing and business studies.
I would like to study computer science at a good university and I am very confused on what might be good for me. I have now realised that I should have done Physics or Further Maths instead of Business Studies but I guess its too late to do an A-level.
I have a choice of studying 3A2 preferably, Maths, computing and economics.
Go 3 A2 and 1 AS
or do an Extended project.
I could do AS physics, BUT I have only done core science at GCSE, would I be able to do the subject? And is there a point of doing 1 AS as universities only give you an offer on 3 A2s.
Secondly is there a possibility of me doing further maths without doing the Mechanics units or jut M1 as I would have finished C1, C2 and S1 in year 12 and would study C3,C4 and S2 next year so that excempts me from doing S1 for further maths.
Can self study be a good option?
I am really confused do universities actually value Extended project if I decided to do it for Computing?
PLEASE HELP ME EVERYONE URGENT!!

You would probably be able to do A level physics - they teach you everything from scratch and you are obviously competent at maths so you should be fine, as long as your college allow it.
Even though your offer at university *probably* won't rely on it, AS physics would still be a good thing to have. AS further maths would be just as good, if not better. You could self-study M1, D1 and FP1, none of which are terribly hard conceptually, it is just content really and gets you more practised at maths.

What do you think about the extend project, should I go for another AS or do an extended project?
