Can I get into a good university for Computer Science with 2 A-levels and 1 AS? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone.

    I'm currently taking Computing and Business Studies at A2 and Economics and AS. I obtained two Cs at AS for the Business and Computing.

    The issue is that I was taking Maths along with the computing and business last year but I had to drop maths due to an ongoing medical condition I've had at the start of the year which affected my performance.

    I could have obtained a higher grade for computing but a few days before my last computing exam I got diagnosed with muscle wasting which didn't help me mentally and made me feel more stressed which makes my condition worse.

    My question is: Is it possible I can get into a good university with 2 A2 and 1 AS. If that's not possible should I just finish of my economics at A2 next year(take one subject only) or should I take other subjects with it?

    Also if I do finish my A2 business and computing should and just finish my economics(taking only economics A2 next year, nothing else) will it affect my Uni application as I've not done 3 A2 in one year?

    Thank you all and sorry for a long post.
