    Why? When universities ask for a science they sometimes allow psychology and they sometimes don't. It varies by course/university.

    Simple really.

    Hi, there. I don't recall A-Level Physics being a requirement for the Computer Science course at Cambridge though I think it might ask for A-Level Maths but check the website and if it says required, it means you must do that A-Level to get into that specific course. Secondly, your proposed A-Level combinations are fine though I would swap Business Studies with Economics but it doesn't matter too much unless the university has a list which says it doesn't accept a qualification in that subject. Thirdly, doing outside reading for your subjects is a fantastic way of showing why you are a worthy candidate for the course you want to do and I would recommend doing essay competitions or visiting difference places to develop your knowledge and interest for any subject you want to do. If you want to know more about Computing A-Level you can ask Lemur14 because she studies it at A-Level and can tell you what it's like. Hope this helps.

    To be fair, it depends on the college.

    Yes I did read carefully what was said and there is absolutely no reason to hurl abuse to another TSRian.
