Hi i am really intrested in doing computer science at university and would like to join a top university which require me to do further maths. However I am unsure which modules would be best for me. Can someone please help me. Also is further maths difficult compare to normal maths. I got a A in maths in O levels.

Decision is always quite a safe bet if you are wishing to do Computer Science. (Remember some of the very top universities will require you to also do an entrance exam e.g. STEP or the Computer Science part of the MAT.)

Decision 1 and Decision 2 can be very helpful for computer science, so I've heard, as they deal with algorithms, shortest paths, sorting, etc... Perhaps some FP modules as well. Stats and mechanics modules don't fit into computer science as much, I'd imagine.

FM is broader in scope than normal maths with more things to consider in certain questions as opposed to ones in normal ones, so to speak. If you're good with the content of normal maths and know it inside out, you'd be fine in FM.

For a CS course in uni, physics wouldn't matter because you're taking the actual CS A-Level alongside Maths + FM A-Levels which are both beneficial.
