Definitely ICT/computers (don’t know what your school calls it) and maybe something like electronics because that’s to do with engineering. Also graphics if your school does that

Sciences and IT I’m guessing ☺️☺️☺️ If ur thinking as far as uni I suppose you’ll want a course like computer science, and although I’m not an expert on the sciences I’m sure a computer science course at uni wants a levels in those types of subjects, so it’s a good idea to go with them at GCSE’s. Good luck! 👍🏼👍🏼

Try this-

Try and do all 3 sciences, get good grades in Maths and Science. Then do Computer Science(Or its equivalent), and do GCSE DT(Design Technology) as extra's.
That should work out fine.

Triple science if you are good at science
Design technology or even BTEC engineering if your school has it
Computer science (only do IT if your school doesn't do comp science)

Computer Science at GCSE was extremely helpful for me so I would definitely recommend. I didn't do IT but I heard it was more about managing databases than anything else.

Computer Science will help, although it is not necessary. GCSE choices don't really matter if you are going college except the usual 3 sciences, maths and english. I never did any computer-related subjects in GCSE or A-levels but I still got offers for Computer Science degrees.

Subjects that would lead directly to a career in computer science:

- Science
- IT
- Computer Science (if your school does it)
- Graphics

Subjects that would be helpful but not essential:

- Geography
- History
- Languages

Thanks zoqua
NP, one of my friends is doing something similar to you. Just push the Computer Science, DT, Maths and Science grades as high as you can and that should get you Maths, Computer Science and any third A level to do with it, or you could do A Levels 3 days a week and an Apprenticeship the other 2, which would give you practical experience, then apply for a Computer Science and Engineering course at the best Uni that will have you, and you can do additional qualifications as well(I'm in Year 10 and I know this stuff its weird I know). Good luck.
