    I'm in my last GCSE year- year 12 in Northern Ireland- I've been thinking a lot at what I want to do at A level. i know the end goal is a computer science degree at university. Because I didn't like maths when I started high school and didn't realize I'd need it in the future I didn't focus on it and I'm now in the lowest level class- taking the T3 and T5 exams next year. I can understand a lot more now, I'd even go as far as saying I enjoy it, but my school has said because I'm the lowest class I can't do it at A-Level- which most universities require for computer science. my first question is- how many universities will accept me for a computer science course if I haven't done maths A Level? Secondly- I thought about maybe doing Computing and Technology for relevance to the uni course and Psychology purely because it interests me. I have a lot of motivation to pass these subjects, that isn't an issue, I just want to know if that sounds like a strange mix of choices.
