    All depends on your option blocks but a language, a humanity and computer science or computing. How many options do you have?

    OK so you pretty much get what I said to do. I would do computer science/computing as one of your options and then something you enjoy as light relief. Tbh you generally enjoy what you are good at so just pick something you are likely to get a good grade in with less work than other subjects.
    Something like business studies would be great if it is offered or something practical like engineering to show variety but still be within the same sort of field (and is scope for if you change your mind about computer programming).
    Obviously I don't know exactly what is offered at your school so I can't tell you exactly (and knowing my school I couldn't even guess seeing as we had over 30 different options which we were offered and I have no clue which ones are normal to offer and which ones are rare)
