    I can't figure out what A levels to choose.

    I definitely want to go into computer science, either artificial engineering or cybersecurity, but anything in the compsci industry will satisfy.

    I definitely want to do Maths and Further Maths, but I'm not sure if I want to do Computer Science or Physics as my 3rd choice. My schools says I should take both, but I'm worried I'll neglect my other subjects for the 4th subject.

    For anyone that wants to know, I got an 8 in Maths, 7 in Computer Science and 6 in Physics (mock papers grades). I like all the subjects so its not a problem which I do, I just want to know what I should do, based on my interests.

    Any advice?

    Just take all 4, computer science will help if you want to do a computing degree as you’ll be ahead of everyone else. I’m taking the same subjects except chemistry instead of physics. You can always take one as an AS and then drop it if you really want, that way you’ll still have a qualification but won’t neglect one of them during exam season
