    This would greatly depend on many factors - location, finance, type of university...etc.There is a useful search tool that might be of help, it searches your course among UK Universities based on your Alevel results. It's called whatuni. Check it out and hope it could be of help

    Pick a university where the course content aligns with your interests. It's a rather broad question, you should research some universities and courses (if you wish to specialise in something, for example Games Development) and then come up with a shortlist. Are you thinking about doing a placement?

    Queens University (Canada), Western Ontario. I'm sure there are more but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    In UK maybe UEA, Surrey, Liverpool? Check out their websites.

    Computer science is pretty competitive at university, but you should look at the entry requirements on the websites as it may vary from uni to uni. Generally, they will ask between AAA and ABB for top tier, however you may as well apply a couple of them, as long as you have a great personal statement.

    As has already been pointed out, Computer Science is very competitive and in that respect, BBC would not be considered particularly good grades. You won't get into a top uni. Set your sights much lower.

    These are the results of the search on Which Uni website for Unis that would accept BBC.

    https://university.which.co.uk/searc...s_bound%5D=120

    Cardiff Uni seems to be the best one on the list. Double check with each of the Uni websites though - Edinburgh is on the list and I know that their standard offer is AAA.
