    Have you thought about degrees such at Information Technology Management for Business?

    http://www.e-skills.com/itmb

    It is endorsed by a range of companies and the course if less mathematical than straight Computer Science.

    Top universities such as UCL , Sheffield, Manchester and Loughborough offer this course amongst others.

    There are tonnes of computing degrees you could do that aren't computer science, eg:
    • computing
    • software engineering
    • computer networks
    • computer forensics
    • atificial intelligence
    • business it
    • computer hardware engineering
    • ...


    Generally a lot of degrees in the computing sector are interchangeable and wouldn't massively hinder your career choices from choosing 'the wrong course'

    Computer science isnt as maths heavy as you make it out to be. For most CS courses maths is not a requirement and if you achieved a B in A level maths you will have no problem with the maths aspect of the course. I think in my first year i only had 2/12 modules which were purely maths based and from then on no purely maths modules. Obviously maths is involved but nothing to hard so i wouldn't let it put you off.

    Nothing beyond the basics I imagine, most uni's only ask for a C or above at GCSE
