    Depends what you mean by top Uni.
    the normal way is for you to look at the entrance criteria for the course you wish to apply for.

    Offers are expressed in terms of 45 credits made up of 15 units of 3 credits each at level 3. You are probably looking at 45 distinction credits needed for the likes of Manchester and Warwick.

    Funding is via advanced learner loan

    Often Access students have difficulty getting on to STEM (including CS), as the L3 maths components of Access are not equivalent to A-Level maths or FM. They combat this by taking Access and one A-Level in maths at the same time.

    Take Manchester:

    Applications are considered on an individual basis, e.g. additional educational achievements, life experience and skills. Please contact the University for further information. Our standard academic requirements include 60 credits with 45 at Level 3. Minimum of 40 credits should be with a Distinction grade (15 of which must be in mathematics), plus 15 credits with a Merit grade in a science-related subject. Students are also required to have a grade A in A-level mathematics with a pure element.
    But not all decent unis require an A-Level in maths. See Nottingham's entry requirements.
