Yes. You do not need to study CS at GCSE or A-Level to get onto a CS degree programme.

Whichever interests you more. Your GCSE options do not impact your options that much, if at all

Blue Cow is right. I applied for a computer science degree last year and not a single place I looked at even recommended computer science as an A-Level, let alone require it.

Furthermore, if you are planning to study Computer Science at A-Level, most 6th-forms do not require a Computer Science degree.

If you want to get into top Universities though, most of them really like their students to do as much maths as possible. If you have the option to do either Additional Maths FSMQ or Further Maths GCSE, I would take that opportunity, as it can really help with your first year of A-Level maths, which is a requirement on the majority of Computer Science courses.

Hope this helps. Just do what you enjoy though!
