    So i want to Do Computer Science At University
    I am Doing Maths and Physics that fine. But it turns out i am the only one who wants to do A Level Computing. So i Been Given a Choice to do Chemistry or Biology at the sith form i am going to. But their might be a possibility to do A Level Computing at the Sith Form across the road which is ran by the same Academy Trust.

    Look into the one across the road, you really need to do computing at A-level to do computer science. Have you done a computing GCSE? If not I highly recommend you switch as you need to try it out before you do it at uni.

    You do not need Computing/ Computer Science at A level for university study.

    Pretty sure if you tell the Uni that you couldn't do it A-Level they really won't mind at all as it is out of your control.

    Ideally you want Maths, FM and Physics. Computing can be taken as a 4th but isn't necessary for the degree.

    Nothing wrong with this combination of A levels, a lot of people studying Computer Science at uni will have a combination similar to this.
