    Currently doing
    OCR IT
    BTEC Business Diploma

    Should I drop business and do extended OCR IT?

    Maths is good. Can you take up Computing? If not, can you take up Further Maths? If not can you take up physics? If not can you take up another STEM subject?

    Do you do any programming in the OCR Extended IT?

    if not I would suggest either: BTEC IT (if it includes the programming units), Computing/Computer Science, Further Maths, Electronics or Physics

    Business isnt really relevant and you would find one of the above courses more beneficial

    My brother is doing computer science & he has A levels in Maths, Further Maths & Physics. He got accepted at all 5 unis he applied for, as far as I know, so I guess those are good for computer science. If you can switch to one of those (if you're finishing y12, they might let you do an extra AS in y13) then that might be an idea!
