I am currently looking to do computer science when I go to university but I feel I've chosen the wrong A-levels
My options are maths, physics, applied ICT and the Welsh baccalaureate.
Is this an good or have I made a mistake?

I took Applied ICT, English Literature and English Language and got into 4 out of 5 uni's of my choices including my first choice. Picking Maths was a great idea and so is physics, as long as you get decent grades you will get into whichever university you want to go to.

You only really need maths.

From what I gathered the recommended A levels for computer science are further maths > maths > physics > sciences. That being said, most of the times maths is the only one required and the rest only gives you a higher chance or knowledge related to the course. Many universities think lowly of Applied/IT but unless your aiming to go somewhere prestigious it doesn't really matter - but that doesn't mean you have no chance at all, if you do well overall in performance and show individuality during interviews you might be able to get in any.
Before you label me as credible, I haven't even started my A-levels so I might not be correct :3
