I'm in Year 11 and I made a massive mistake in picking my options, as I didn't choose Computer Science. I have recently started to grow a huge interest in it and I'm considering to choose it for my A-Levels. I have minimal prior knowledge so I'm wondering if I should pick it or not. Do I need a drastic amount of prior knowledge for CS A-Level?

Nope I did the A Level without GCSE. Does help to do some research I'd say, I'd recommend just in your spare time watching some GCSE or AS playlists on YouTube, AS is mostly GCSE content but more mathematical and a more challenging coursework project. I used these two AS ones for revision so I'd recommend them
