If you think you’re capable of achieving well at A level, personally I think that’s the better route. Obviously I’d say do your own research on it but if you do A levels, some big companies will allow you to progress onto degree apprenticeships, where you will earn a degree and work for the company in breaks from uni etc, meaning you finish 3 years with a degree (often paid for by your employer), relevant (again often paid) work experience in the field, and a job at the end of your course.

I know a few people who have gone down this route and are starting computer science or similar degrees at well respected universities, so it’s worth looking into that further.
