    For example I can't study law, because it's too hard for my English. In application to Sixth Form needs to write 4 subject. I decided to study the Computing and Maths, so i need two more. And I a little bit don't understand how works education system after Sixth Form, because I want go to University

    I reckon you should do:

    >Computing
    >Maths
    >Physics
    >(maybe another science like chemistry) the you could just stop doing the fourth subject later once you start a -levels. Just tell them it's too much work for you.

    If you want to study computing in university you only need either maths or computing but It's good that you're taking both.
    Yes after two years of being taught in college you will take your exams.
    You will apply to some universities before you take your exams and then when you have got your grades you tell the university your grade and they will either accept you or not.

    If you can speak Russian very well ask to do it as an A-level.
    Only if you can write russian, read russian and speak russian very fluently.

    It depends what university you want to go to.
    Usually good universities want grades: BBB or above.

    Yes, you could do it as an A-level but you won't get taught it at school - you'll just have to do the exam at the end of the year ( you could probably even do it in the first year of A-levels if you're prepared for it).

    No you need to know how to write and speak and read and have to be able to translate some stuff from russian to english. Do you think you can do that?
