    Hi all.

    First of I'd like to apologise for yet another Oxford GCSE question however I couldn't find one answering my query.

    I'm looking at a Computer Science degree, with A-Levels ( current predictions A*A*A, with Maths, Computer Science and politics respectively ). Also, I'm doing an EPQ related around computer science and data science.

    At GCSE however, I achieved one A*, three A's and the rest B's.

    Assuming I can do well enough in the MAT ( if I get to that ) is that realistic to have a chance, should I look at other universities or should I be considering something like STEP to cement my maths knowledge.

    I thank thee.

    We don't put very much weight on GCSEs for a Computer Science degree, so your results certainly won't rule you out. Having said that, most successful candidates do have better results than that, so you will need to persuade us that you're better than your results suggest.
