    Hi
    I was wondering what computer science is like at A Level, my school im currently at has completely messed up and we've had around 5 conputer science teachers in the 2 years. Due to this we have lost opportunuties to learn and are a bit behind. I was just wondering how A Level compares to GCSE and if i should be worried.
    Thanks

    To study Computer Science at University level you don't need it at A-levels. The University teaches you everthing you need to know. Infact i would recommend taking physics. A-level physics is litterally the best A-level you can take in my eyes. I did study Electronic and Electrical engineering at a Russell group uni and am currently working on my dissertation in communication sector. Sometimes i forget stuff (like planks constant and what it is used for) than read for like a minute and remember i did it at A-level Physics.
    I cannot recommend A-level physics enough! You will need it. (BTW i am doing my dissertations using C and if you want to take real life problems you need to know the physics behind them, so simply being able to program will only get you half way)
