    At the moment, I'm doing maths, business, economics and accounting as my a levels and I'm planning to do a 5th in computer science. My 6th form is not going to teach me computing as I'm required to self-study but the school will pay for the exams. I couldn't do computing as a general a level as it overlapped with maths. I'm thinking of doing AS because A2 computing requires a project. I wanna do a level computing because I'm passionate about computers and it's just unfortunate that it overlaps with maths. Do you think 5 as level subjects are ok? For A2 I'm probably gonna be doing 3 subjects. Also, for uni i'm planning to do accounting and finance with computer science at the university of Lancaster, that's why i wanna do computer science.

    You're crazy.

    Yeah, or you could limit yourself down to three or four like the rest of us, get better grades as a result, which will result to more universities accepting you, as universities don't care if you've done 5 A-levels, they care about your grades, and your grades are likely to suffer due to the heavy workload. You're applying to Lancaster, not Cambridge. I would do Math, Economics, and Computer Science.
