So I have my last GCSE exam tomorrow (which is graphics btw) and I need to start to finalize my A-Level choices so that I can prepare for them in September.
Currently, I have Product Design, Geography and Physics down but.. I want to do Computing Science at university which is incredibly annoying for me seeing as though my school doesn't offer any IT/Computing related A-Levels purely because of the lack of computing teachers in the UK right now. Literally, the last 3 computing science teachers (from January to June) have all been utter sh**; one of them was a bloody n*nc* and got fired (I know, it sounds like I'm making this up but for real, he was what I just said - and he even tried selling my class some drugs like WTF.)
Anyway, going back from digressing, I guess the main question that I'm asking is 'do computing courses at universities require a computing A-Level or maths for that matter?'

Hi, most universities do require maths alevel for computing/ICT degrees. In terms of computing alevels, as your college/sixth form doesn't offer that as an option, the referee can always mention that in the UCAS reference so the universities don't look down on your application as obviously subject availability is out of your power.
Hope this helps and best of luck with alevels.
