    Kings college london has in fact changed their entry requirements, now you must have either maths, further maths, computer science or computing. no more accepting with ICT, software developing, electronics etc.

    Can someone link the courses? I can't seem to find a computing course at Edinburgh that does not require maths.

    As a Computer Science student, I do recommend you look into a bit of Maths before going to University. The majority of A-Level will be covered in just a few hours.
