    I want to do a degree in computer science/ Artificial Intellegence at some of the high ranking uni's for Computer Science. ( Not Cambridge/Oxford/Imperial) More like UCL or University of Birmingham - Around the top 10 mark. I have decided to take Maths,Computing and Psychology as i have a deep interest in all of these and I believe it will help me in the future. I do maths and computing for GCSE and aiming to get a 9 in maths and at least an 8 in computing. Would these subjects give me a solid foundation to take a specialised computing course like Artificial Intelligence at one of the higher Russell Group Universities. Was thinking about taking further Maths however I do not want to end up getting myself in a bad situation because maths , computing and psychology are all hard subjects themselves. (yeah, I know what your thinking ) I should choose physics but I'm not really interested in it and although it is maths based which is good I'd rather take a subject I'm passionate in which is psychology but the question is , is psychology a good subject to take along these for my desired course.

    Yes, just check the entrance requirements. It will not just be about grades, but all the rest of your application so pay attention to that. Grades matter. If the entrance requirements say anything it will be Maths and CS. You can also contact the uni as they are all different.

    psychology is a perfectly acceptable third choice, requirements will likely be for maths only, many don't even require computer science, you should take the subjects that you are most passionate about that you are confident of doing well in
