    Looking at their website you need at least a B in GCSE Maths, and I'm not sure that your combination of subjects is acceptable to them anyway.

    You might need to do a foundation course because A level maths is usually required for computer science. Look for an integrated degree (honours and foundation combined).

    You can do a foundation year and then go into computer science
    If you fail you're foundation year, you won't be able to go into you're chosen course.
