    Surely it depends on the course? Not all courses require maths either

    It depends on your degree, I'm certain you don't need it just to get into Oxbridge.. What's the point in doing computer science for a English degree?

    For Comp Sci, I believe Maths, Further Maths and Physics are more important. Pretty sure it says somewhere. Gimme a moment and I'll find a source.

    I'll leave my initial statement for posterity. So no, you don't need it, but if you can take it you would be highly advised.

    I'm excited to see Cambridge make CS applicants take a CSAT now, I'm sure that's new. If I can just get an interview then I have a chance to prove myself...

    Here you go, the Comp Sci department explicitly states that a computing related subject isn't necessary.
    That said, the video is 4 years old despite being linked on the main page, and I'd definitely take it if you have the option, going by that some colleges ask for it. I take it myself, if you have an affinity for it you'll find it the easiest thing in the world.
