ICT concerns a bit more on external features of computers e.g. environment stuff, data protection whereas Computing is more internal features e.g. coding languages

From my experience, AS ICT has horrid writing exams and would try avoid it if you can! You need to write in specific ways to get marks contrary to what it says on the marks scheme >.<. Not sure on computing though.

Depends on what you want to do i suppose. Are there any other subjects at gcse which you were good at? Any other options you are interested in?

I would 100% be against doing ICT and Computing. The coursework alone would make you want to curl up and cry. :lol: If you're more interested in making websites, advanced excel and the other theory things like data protection. managing systems and emerging technologies, pick ICT. For computing you'll have to create a project system, this may be a spelling test system or theater booking system for examples. The exam is on data types, change over methods, binary, pseudo code and algorithms.
