Well you heard what the man said but this trick might work, how about if your enrol another good uni then after one year, when you really achieve good grades then transfer to King's. This is just suggestion. Call them again and ask what their requirement is for someone who is transferring from another uni to this uni after one year or one semester.

Most leading universities require A level Maths for Computer Science as it is very Mathematical. Your best options will be Lancaster, Nottingham(possibly) UEA, Sussex and Kent. There will be others

Funny thing is i find this A level math easy but i fail GCSE math. I know you will say it's impossible and you have to know the basic.

Your GCSEs are poor tbh, but I’m assuming you already have your btec grades so shouldn’t be too detrimental. The entry requirements for both A Level and Btec state A level maths is necessary, but you could contact and ask to confirm.

It says you have DDD and a 6.

, but also says

At least one of Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Computer Science or Computing


I think that means A level.

Hi there!
As swanseajack1 has already mentioned, have you considered the University of Kent's computer science course?
Their entry requirements do not require maths at A-level but they do ask for a 4/C in maths at GCSE, which you have already exceeded
If you're considering Kent at all then you may find it useful to talk to a current computer science student at Kent to find out how they're finding the course, what they're hoping to do after, and any other questions you may have, you can do this via the Unibuddy programme at Kent. Here is the link in case you're interested. It could even be useful just to get an insight into life as a computer science student more generally!
If you have any questions about computer science/life at Kent then please feel free to ask!
Good luck with your university applications
