    Don't know about easy, but Physics and Further Maths would probably put you in the best stead.

    Edit: if your sixth form offers directly related courses like Programming, then obviously go with those instead of FM and Physics

    Don't do. A level iits painful. But seriously do physics and computer science for the best a levels for your career. For easy ones English language which is still has credit

    whatever you enjoy you will find easy. There's no such thing as an 'easy' a level. Check uni requirements to be sure you don't need another one other than maths

    Probably mean computer science? Anyways, I don't recommend taking easy A Levels just for the sake of them being apparently easy. Make no mistake, natural sciences and maths will always be considered the hardest generally, but usually, every A Level can be made difficult if you're unmotivated.

    Have you considered further maths, physics, computer science etc

    If you just want easy A-levels I'm assuming you won't want to take Further Maths at all, and you only need it for the top universities anyway, but definitely take maths. For the other two just pick from that third list.

    If you want to do CS maths is great but you might not need further maths it depends on your subject of interest. App dev for example has far less abstract math involved than compiler design.

    I'd go for another hard science in honesty, such as physics or chemistry.

    Thanks for the replies. I will probably take further maths if I get an 8 in my GCSE.
    Also, what do you study in Philosophy and is it hard?
