    I am going into college in August of this year, and i'm really interested in Computer Science. I am looking to take at college, Computer Science, Maths and Physics but I am just wondering, if I did take these a-levels, would they be the correct options for me to get into University to study Computer Science at degree level?
    Thanks

    Yes. Alternatively, you could do further maths, maths, physics and computer science if you can handle it Good choices.

    If you want to go to a 'top' uni further maths would be preferable to either computer science or physics. Or you could do it on top.

    Id double check a couple of unis websites to see what they say about what subjects/grades they require, but they sound fine.

    If you'd struggle to cope with further maths, you're very likely to struggle with a computer science degree. It's heavily maths based.
