    Hi, I am struggling choosing between these two A-levels. I am pursuing for a degree in computer science, which of these two A-levels would be best suited for this? I decided to steer from doing decision maths as I am doing an A-level in Computer Science and I am steering from statistics as I didn't like the GCSE much.

    Possibly.

    I chose those two subjects because I really enjoy them both, plus I felt that it would develop a wide variety of skills.

    This ^

    Or even take Maths, RE, Psychology and Comp to AS, then drop Pyschology or RE and take Further maths to AS then as well.

    Also, just do the normal A-level maths imo, mech and stats can come in handy.
