Am I limiting myself by choosing AS Maths instead of doing it for 2 years, if I choose to go to University? If I were to go to University I would most likely do some type of Computing course. Thanks in advance.

Check your courses on the university's website and look at the entry requirements you may not even need maths (not sure about computing). The entry requirements will show you what A level grades/UCAS points you need and whether you need a a level in a specific subject (like maths or english) and if you need a minimum GCSE grade (eg. a B grade in GCSE maths).
If you didnt get an A*/A for GCSE maths A level will be very hard. Also unis won't really look at the AS that you dropped they look at your 3 A levels.

computer science involves a lot of maths i hear, i reckon you ought to do it for 2 years and if you decide not to, just try and get a b or perhaps an a

If you're looking to do computer science or something then you really need maths. Most universities have it on their required a levels, some even have further maths, but that's really hard core. Because computing covers multiple computer languages, they usually don't focus so much on exactly what knowledge you have, but rather on a logical mindset. Maths is the most logical subject, so that's usually a good show of how you think. Most universities don't even require a computing a level when you want to do computing, but always a maths one.
I'm actually going through this exact phase at the moment as well, so i've done a lot of research. Good luck!
