    So I was looking at the entry requirements for Computer Science at Queen mary university. They requirements just say 'ABB (exclude general studies)'. I asked my form tutor and she said that you can basically take anything and get in so long as you get the grades because they will teach you the foundations in 1st year(?)

    I take Biology, psychology, English Lit at a levels + Btec ICT for 1 year

    Taking maths is always good for computer science

    Usually they want Maths but if you've done Computer Science they'll probably let you in too unless it's specifically mentioned that you must have maths in order to do it.

    Considering your current A Levels, I'm not sure you'll be able to get into the higher end of universities offering Computer Science but there's no harm in trying.
