    Hi there. Don't give up. I don't know where you got the information that you can't do computer science without a Maths or Computer Science A-level? That certainly isn't true. Have you looked at requirements for the course in university prospectuses? My friend is going to do computer science at University this year and doesn't have any of those A-levels. He has English Literature, Physics and Chemisty. He got offers from allfive universities to do the course, one being one of the best universities for the course, and with one offer being unconditional. Look into it some more, you do need those A-levels to do computer science. Don't give up!

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply!

    I never knew this was the case, just been looking around on UCAS and such and seeing "Required Maths A-Level" in nearly all of the Entry Requirement fields. Out of interest which five universities did your friend apply to?

    Again thank you for the reply and have a nice evening.

    I'll have to ask him for all five, but I know he has applied to Sheffield Hallam, Leicester DeMontford and Hertfordshire for sure, I can't remember the other two but they've all given him offers. If you look on Sheffield Hallams Computer Science page, and look on the Entry Requirements, you'll see you don't need any specific subjects.

    Have a look on the entry requirements on actual university websites rather than UCAS an external websites! Hopefully you'll find that this is the case

    Hey Kaneki,

    Being interested in a subject is really going to help you get through university, so don't give up the dream.
    For our computer science course you don't need to have studied Maths, Computer Science or IT at A-Level: http://www.herts.ac.uk/courses/computer-science
    You could try some online courses to give yourself a taster of aspects of the course; like coding for the web? Make sure your personal statement is focused and shows why you are interested in the subject area, and any extra research/things you've done around your current A-Levels that makes you think this subject is right for you.

    Hope that helps!
