I want to study computer science at university, but no computer science course was offered to my cohort.

My final (I)GCSE grades are as follows:

CIE IGCSE International Mathematics: A*
CIE IGCSE Additional Mathematics: A
Edexcel IGCSE Triple Award Biology: A*
Edexcel IGCSE Triple Award Chemistry: A*
Edexcel IGCSE Triple Award Physics: A*
CIE IGCSE First Language English: B
Edexcel IGCSE English Literature: A
CIE IGCSE Foreign Language Mandarin Chinese: A*
CIE IGCSE Global Perspectives: A*
Edexcel IGCSE Economics: A*
Edexcel IGCSE Geogrphy: A*
AQA GCSE Graphic Products: A

Are my grades good enough for Cambridge and Imperial? What else can I do in order to maximise my chances of attaining a seat at a top university?

I think you already know they're good enough.
