    none of them require ICT A-Level
    some require computing or mathematics or just mathematics though.

    I have come across many courses that show interest in taking ICT, but yes none as a requirement ... o.O it makes me think ICT's abit pointless but i find it quite interesting

    ICT is absolutely useless for anything CS/AI related.

    Quite understandable, I'm unsure if I wanted to go down the AI/CS route (doing maths and further currently) , or IT route such as digital media. I'm passionate about both fields. At least my options are open I guess

    In that case, go for AI/CS - it's way more sexy.

    Jk, it's up to you - I'd research both degrees/job opportunities within digital media before making a firm decision. With Maths and FM, you're in a strong position.

    That's good to know
    My only issue is at GCSE I wasn't allowed to take computing due to slacking in year 8 (we took our options early) and in the end proved to get a decent set of results and now take my A* subjects at A level. Will I be disadvantaged for not doing CS at GCSE and a level even though my school offer it? I took further maths to make up for it alongside basing my EPQ on AI :/

    There are a number of AI modules integrated into my Electrical & Electronic Engineering Degree, admittedly they're all optional though

    Hey. Yeah course. I got BBC in Maths, Chemistry and Biology but I'm resitting a module in each so I'm set to get AAA/AAB at A-level. I've got my fifth offer now too.

    I applied with AAB as my predicted grades and got 4 AAA offers and 1 AAB. What subjects are you taking as some unis will lower your offer if you have a computing A-level?
