    Hello.
    So I am in year 11 and I am starting to pick my A-levels. I already know that in the future I want to study Computer Science at Cambridge or UCL. They both require A*AA. So I have already decided on Maths and Computer Science but I am having a hard time finding something for the third subject, that those schools will look for and like. I would like to also point out that I need to get an A in that subject so I need one that is easy but isn't a 'soft' subject.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Anything you'd find interesting: art, a science, history?

    What sort of subjects does your school do? Maybe you could do something you enjoyed a lot for GCSES, or a science? It depends really. Do you need to have another subject that is to do with Comp Sci, or can you just choose a different one that you do well in you GCSEs.

    Maybe Physics or Further Maths since they're related to the subjects that you've chose.

    Thanks for replying. My school offers many subjects for a level and it is a science specialist school. I was thinking of physics because I am quite good at that however, after the recent changes to the syllabus, I'm thinking that it may be too hard to get an A in. I was also wondering, if economics is good or easy.

    Physics or further maths would probably be the ideal third and fourth choices 9from an academic perspective).
    What exactly do the course requirements say?
