    Have you checked the entry requirements? They should be on the website.

    I don't think A level computer science is necessary because no every school offers it

    Yes, those three are probably the most common combination for CS. Source: spoke to a Cambridge admissions officer.

    Thank you guys for the replies, but I don't have a GCSE in ICT/Computing whatever it is, and my sixth form won't let me do a subject if I have no GCSE in it, so I was just wondering whether Physics and Maths are necessary

    Maths is a definite requirement, physics is not. However, physics is a strong A-level, and you may not get a place if you choose a weaker A-level.

    You do not need any computing courses to get a place at Cambridge, I would even guess that most of the students there do not have an A-level in CS/IT.
