    I haven't got CS GCSE therefore I can't do it for A-Level says my little sister's grammar school . But my plan B is to take Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry I do like these subjects. But, is my plan B good enough for me to work in a game company? :confused: I really want to return to Japan and work in Square Enix (they made Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest). I'm planning to study CS with Maths at Cambridge.

    I don't know about your career plans but you can certainly start a CompSci degree at Cambridge or another University without Computing at A-level.

    I'm a fellow computer science/maths applicant!

    I've seen some unis say they prefer you NOT to have done compsci A level, as they prefer to teach you from scratch. In any case, you won't be at a disadvantage with those subjects! (At least I hope not; I'm doing those 4 as well)
