    Computer Science at KCl says:

    Compulsory subjects
    At least one of: Mathematics, Computer Science, Electronics, Physics or Statistics. GCSE Maths grade B (or equivalent).

    However the A Levels sections says:

    A levels
    AAB including grade B in at least one of Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Computing, ICT, Electronics or Statistics. Additionally, GCSE (or equivalent) grade B in Mathematics.


    I'm quite confused about what the 'Compulsory Subjects' is saying compared to the A Levels section.

    The compulsory subjects does not include certain subjects such as Computing.
    However, the A levels sections say that it does...


    I am guessing Computing & ICT at A Level comes under Computer Science?

    Short answer: yes, you guess correctly.

    Long answer: the compulsory subjects section is not UK specific - it is a summary that whatever qualifications someone applies with, we want a subject in one of those areas, with the exact details varying between qualifications. For A-level students, the list is the one you quoted: Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Computing, ICT, Electronics or Statistics.

    Ahh okay, thanks.

    I also emailed KCL and they said it was an error.
