My possible A level options watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi just choosing my A level options and here what I think are best suited to a possible university course in computer science. What do you think?

    Related GCSE grades (predicted)
    Maths - A*
    ICT - A
    Science - A

    A level options:
    Subject - grade want

    Computing - A*
    Maths - A
    Further maths (AS) - A
    Physics - A

    How hard are these option choices?
    To get the grades i want how much of a social life i'm i going to have?

    It really depends. Do you have quite the passion for maths and ict/computing?

    For me, I have a real passion for maths and am gifted in it, which also makes physics quite easy, so those 2 and further maths aren't bad at all for me, but some would call them the hardest A-Levels available - in which case these AS's you've picked could be extremely difficult. They're perfectly doable and because they're something you can just be good at you don't need to work so much for them (can't speak for computing), but just make sure you know what you need to.

    It all depends on the work you put in

    I got A* s in both English lit and history at GSCE and I got Ds in AS level.

    Also further maths is extreamly hard, people who get As at a level maths sometimes cant scrape more than a D at further maths, so be very concious of that.
