I am currently taking 7 A-Levels considering I have learnt 4 languages fluently and would like to study computer science at Cambridge. Although I have heard Oxford is much better for computer science so which should I choose? My GCSE grades are very good, and I've heard Oxford prefer GCSE grades:

Maths = A*
Further Maths A^
Physics =A*
Biology = A*
Chemistry = A*
English Language = A*
English Literature = A*
German = A*
Spanish = A*
French = A*
Italian = A*
Mandarin = A* (Completed at 12 so I forgot a lot but i can still speak fluently)
Cantonese = A*
Portuguese = A*
Computing = A*
Geography = A*
History = A*
Psychology = A*
Music = A*
Ancient Languages = A*
I was considering taking more GCSE but was advised not to.

I've also taken Maths A-Level 2 years early and received an A*, as well as French and Spanish.

I am currently taking:
Further Maths - A*
Chemistry - A*
Physics - A*
Computing - A*

I am thinking about taking EPQ as I am advised to, but I don't know if I want the extra pressure on applying with an EPQ.
Completing over 2 work experiences at Microsoft and Apple, Cambridge also invited me to Venezuela for a research work experience trip. However I didn't think it was a good use of my time and continued studying for my GCSEs.

I am also Grade 8 in the organ scholarship so I could consider applying to both Oxford as well as Cambridge, your thoughts on what I should be doing?

Personally, I disagree.

My school offers up to 6 A-Levels, of which I have taken 5 and I have received a predicted A* in all 5 of them. I think it's quite immature to assume that you can't take more than 5 A-Levels just because it may be too much workload for you. Maybe you are jealous.

Anyways, good luck Albert, I think Cambridge would be a better choice for Computer Science.

Dear ZombieTheWolf,

Firstly, your username shows that you are hardly intellectual enough to even comment on this student's A-Levels. You should commend him for attempting such a feat, and perhaps wish him luck for the future. However, with your vile and agressive comments I believe there is no longer a place for you on this platform, and I'm sure many others would agree with my statement.

You are what is the problem with our generation and with modern social media websites. Please leave in due course.

That’s well below average for a TSR user. We all study (or have studied) 10+ A levels and are predicted (or achieved) 10 A*s.

Wow Master Stewart,
That's certainly an impressive splay of GCSEs! Personally, both of my cousins Bartholomew and Victoria did CompSci at Oxford and they found it particularly exhilarating. With your crazy qualifications, I'm sure that you would be fully capable of getting into either university! Finally, it may be concluded that Oxford is takes the superficial edge over Cambridge when discussing quality of Computer Science courses, but consider this, I would look into both courses and make an informative decision.
With the most prodigious expectations; Good luck!
