I'm thinking of taking biology, chemistry, physics and German for A-Level. I'm hoping to study medicine. However, if I had a change of heart and didn't want to do medicine anymore, what else could I study at uni?

My question is what degrees are completely off limits with those a levels (other than maths)

You can indeed do a vocational Computer Science degree without maths at most universities -- See this thread stickied on the Computer Science forum:
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5007920

Although 'Computer Science' means different things depending upon whether it's an academic/mathematical Computer Science degree, or whether it's a vocational degree. Only those around the 'top 20' require A-Level maths because those courses tend to be very mathematical in nature, but those courses are totally different compared with the vocational ones you get everywhere else.

Most computing modules you'd find on vocational university courses are completely non-mathematical. That includes topics like Programming, Operating Systems, Hardware/systems engineering, Networking, Databases, Web design/development, Testing, UI/UX design and many others. A lot of vocational computer science or computing degrees tend to cover 'some' maths, but it's usually only one or two modules for the entire degree and usually the kind of thing which is accessible to anyone who achieved a B or C at GCSE.
