    I am currently in my first year doing a level 3 games design btec which I am enjoying but I do not want to be a games designer.
    I want to change to doing a levels in psychology, maths, computing and maybe sociology as I want to either get a degree in computer science or psychology.
    I have all the grades I need to do them except in maths in which I have only achieved a C but I have still been learning maths on my own this past year (because I am cool like that.)
    So do you think it is worth me changing over and would you think they would let me do maths considering I have carried on learning it on my own.

    definitely, A-Levels = More respect

    Hi there,

    Really do not want to upset you but when I went to year 12 they did not let me do A level computing, let alone A level maths with a C in GCSE. Here's what I would do:

    Do a year of GCSE maths again and get an A and take 2 AS subjects too
    Go into your second year of college and do A level computing, A Level maths and your two other A2 subjects in your second year
    Go into your third year of college and finish computing and maths
    Go to university!

    Hope this doesn't upset you too much, same thing happened to me and I was so completely upset. however, It did make me realise computing was not for me.
