    Say if I get an A* or now 9 in Computer Science, and all my other subjects I get C's or 4's and 5's. Will an employer prefer someone with an all round good/okay GCSE results or will they prefer someone who excels in a certain subject that is relevant to the industry?

    well if you want to get into computer science you probably need to advance above gcse with further study such as A levels and university. So although GCSE's don't matter in terms of getting into uni *that much*, you should probably try to get higher in maths and sciences as they will provide a good foundation for more advanced learning!
