    I am finishing my CS course at an ex-poly in a year.
    My problem is that I wanted to do maths and physics instead, so I had a look at the OU course but am worried that the uni's reputation won't help me do a masters at a reputable university later on.
    Is it really possible to do a masters at a RG university with an OU degree?
    If not should I do A-levels instead?

    It is possible, but however for Mathematics and sciences in particular it depends if you cover the necessary prerequisite modules required (and depth) for the masters; as you'll be working way beyond undergraduate level. I'd suggest you first start emailing universities and asking if they do accept a degree from OU (for Maths and Physics in particular).

    Since you are doing CS, you probably had learnt enough basic Maths and Linear Algebra, which would allow you to apply for a graduate diploma in Maths/Physics (much cheaper than doing an undergrad degree all over again), and then move on to a masters.
