My college offers A level subject combination of either
Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Further Mathematics
or
Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science.
Is the new Computer Science subject in A levels any good compared to Further Maths?
Should I take Further Maths or Computer Science? Which would be more helpful for a degree in Computer Science?

Depends what you want on uni. If computer science course, then obviously... computer science?

I think you should do A-level CompScience (+plus the rest of combination: Maths, Chem, Phys), especially as you want to do a degree in it. You'll be able to experience the subject, you'll have some practice, and you'll recognise whether it's what you REALLY want to do in life. ;-)

Thanks for the advice, but I'll still do some research and consider still, probably leaning onto taking Further Math as it is more applicable to more degree choices including computing thus not limiting my choices in the future.
