    For top 5 universities probably not, but those subjects are fine for most other top 20 universities.

    Can you do for subjects? if so I would add Physics onto that because it is very useful for a computer science degree and will also widen your options if you decide it's not for you

    I dont really know, some universities really dont like students studying the A level in that degree subject. Take Law for example, a lot of universities say you are more at an advantage not to take law. Also a lot of people who want to study computer science will have ICT. I would drop business over ICT if you can, but if you cant dont worry!

    Just contact the uni, ask them what they would prefer, they will tell your straight up.

    ask the universities if they are acceptable; answers to questions such as 'are my grades/subjects good enough?' on this forum are based on pure conjecture.
