As you're doing Computer Science A level you should be fine for most good universities (excluding the ones that require A level Maths).

Brunel ask for a Computing BTEC + any A level grade B, contact them and see what they say about having an unrelated BTEC but the A level in Computer Science.

Queen Mary seem like they would be fine with it. They state: "BTEC Diploma: We will consider this qualification for entry to most courses. Applicants will be expected to achieve an additional A-level or acceptable Level 3 qualification, relevant to the course being applied for.".

Check out Royal Holloway, they ask for DD in any BTEC + 1 A level being either: Maths, Computer Science, Chemistry or Physics - https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/stud...puter-science/

Not at all as long as you have Maths and English, for Computer Science though many unis will ask for a B/6 in GCSE Maths
