    No. No maths so no science or engineering course will accept you

    Look at the uni websites and check.

    For KCL it 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.

    Have you had a look at some of the university websites? They will tell you all of the information you need to know.

    For computer science, an A-level in a mathematical subject is almost always required (unless you apply for foundation courses etc.). Some universities may want you to have maths plus one other science, but university requirements differ.

    I've been told that computer science is quite physics orientated, so this thread wouldn't be out of place in the physics section anyway.

    More maths oriented IMHO... though quite a lot of people with physics seem to end up being coders , maybe it uses the same part of the brain :unsure:
