    Do top universities require physics for computer science related courses. I am thinking of being a computer engineer. I am good in computer science but quite despise physics.

    I've checked York and QMUL and neither do but you may have to deal with elements of physics so I would have a look at some courses and work out if it is really for you based on the amount and kind of physics there is.

    For most universities, you don't. I think even Oxbridge doesn't require Physics, however most CompSci courses require Mathematics.

    I want to take Computer Science, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics for A-Level.

    I think not necessary. There is a tutor for computer science if you want. My brother used to go to her. He is in Imperial now doing computer science.
