From a quick glance at university entrance requirements, definitely maths; but other than that go for whatever you enjoy (maybe another facilitating subject, computer science if your school offers it, further maths?). Maybe do some programming in your spare time. A typical combo might be maths, further maths, computer science and physics? Good luck

Computer Science, Maths & Physics are the "Classic" combination as far as I m awear
Maths is mandatory for many top unis now for CS

Thanks for replying!
I forgot to mention that I am interested in chemistry and biology more so than I am in physics would it still be viable to substitute physics and computer science for biology and chemistry (or any other pair e.g maths,further maths, chemistry, biology)

yes a STEM background is good but maths is definitely the most important to unis.

Definitely, as long as you keep the maths (alot of computer science undergraduates haven't done computer science as an a-level).

I am going to do CS this September and I chose maths, chemistry, and art.
As you can see from what I chose only maths is related to CS and top universities only require maths.
But choosing another science would help if you are not 100% certain of doing CS.
