    Hello!
    I got AAAA in the following AS's and am planning to take all 4 to A2:
    maths
    further maths
    physics
    chemistry

    Will these A-levels choices make it likely that I'll get accepted into top 10 universities for computer science? Will I be at a disadvantage not having A level computer science?

    Thanks in advance.

    You won't be at a disadvantage for not having A level CompSci.

    CompSci at university level is very different from A level CompSci.

    Your grades are fine.

    Great grades there. I doubt your at a disadvantage without A-Level CompSci. But if you are applying to UK you also have to consider what you have on your Personal Statement. I'm not an expert on this but from what i have seen, Universities like Imperial College London are extremely competitive. My brother got A*A*A*B but was still rejected even though the entry requirement was A*AAA.
