    It might be possible but a B is needed mostly so maybe you can resit for a higher grade if you do need it.

    It depends where you want to do it e.g. Some colleges only want a C but someone want a B

    No. It won't be too hard. A-Level computer science maths is easy. A-Level Mathematics however is hard lol. I eventually dropped the Mathematics because it was too much for my poor brain but I excel at Computer Science regardless of being bad at maths.

    Remember that whatever you choose, it's not final. You'll get to try them out and if you don't like it and you want to try something else, it can be organised.
