    useful mean that they are reputable in university admission (I have heard that universities like some a levels more than others) and with which you have a broader choice of courses for university note:I said subjects not one single subject,and I wonder it computer science or chemistry is better if you want to enroll in engineering courses

    Probably maths overall

    Useful is context dependent:

    An A* in Further Maths is by all means impressive however in advancing your application for Classics at Oxford I wouldn't be able to say.

    Generally however, Critical Thinking and General Studies are considered obsolete with native languages quickly following suit. After that it would be the subjects which aren't required in any manner for a university course at all i.e. most University courses for Computer Science won't require CISCO or Computing but will require good maths grades etc although may help slightly in the application process.

    The rest is highly subjective.

    With either doing computing or chemistry for engineering it is good for computing engineering but chemistry would be better all round and of course maths is required and quite often physics
