    At my sixth form, we only have the option to do Maths and Further Maths A-Level, but we can only do 5 units in year 12 (C1, C2, M1, C3, C4) and 7 units in year 13 (M2, FP1,S1, S2, FP2, S3, M3). This takes up 2 subject slots in year 12 and also in takes 2 subject slots year 13 (there are four subject slots in both year 12 and 13). This means i can only take 2 other subjects at AS in year 12. I have chosen Chemistry and Physics. Having only taken 3 AS-Levels in year 12 (Plus C3 and C4), would i be at a disadvantage when applying for top 30 UK unis (for computer science)?

    Note that i got an A* in maths GCSE and a Grade A in OCR Additional Maths FSMQ. Also note that i still get a predicted grade for further maths a level based on my preformance in the maths units i take in year 12.

    I think it's a good idea to call the Unis up. However, I think they should understand. Your sixth form has a weird set up.

    I can't really advise on whether you'll be disadvantaged, but I think that if youre concerned you could ask your sixth form if you could self teach a module and for them to put you in for the exam.
