    Further maths might be more useful than computer science.

    There are lots of degrees you can apply for with those, the question is what careers sector do you want to work in? (or specific career if you have an idea) and what do you enjoy? (difficult to say at this point in time for you though)

    You would need to contact stanford about that

    Firstly, artificial intelligence is a specialisation of Stanford's masters degree in CS. It's quite unusual to study AI at undergrad level unless you take grad-level courses. Therefore your A-levels aren't really relevant for that.

    Secondly, US universities don't care about specific A-level choices, only the grades and rigour of your curriculum.

    Thirdly, I would recommend you research your options, because the first bit of information that international applicants researching US universities usually come across is the fact that you do not apply for a specific degree or major for US unis, rather, you apply to the college as a whole and pick your major in your second year (unless you are pursuing advanced standing i.e. skipping a year). Because of that they don't really care about your specific interest in a subject*, more how you can contribute to the college as a whole.

    * There are rare exceptions, e.g. applying for a music college or using your interest in a subject as a significant part of your application e.g. olympiad-level participation.
