    What qualification and it depends on what grades you get .. Your current AS levels aren't even relevant..

    Perhaps do AS Mathematics and Computing next year? If you're up for the challenge. It also depends on where you apply to...

    If possible, get an A-Level in Maths. If I were you I'd do a full Maths A-Level instead of an AS in Maths and Computing. Computing usually isn't a required subject whereas maths is.

    [QUOTE=digitalgangster;51969117]Hi,

    uuurm, most universities actually require you to do physics and maths AS level and some times even further maths, but don't worry there are many courses that have a foundation year if you hadn't done maths a level

    I agree with Scruffy, these subjects show that you have the problem solving and logical deduction skills needed for CS.

    Maths and Further Maths for the top tier unis, a bit lower down you'll be fine with just Maths A Level at grade A, mid-table unis don't always ask for maths but may prefer it along science related subjects, also some are fine with a mix of subjects as long as you get the grades/points required for entry. Computing can be useful, but usually not necessary.
