I’m currently doing a level maths, computer science, Graphic design, and btec level 3 ict subsidiary diploma and I’m unsure what to drop for my 2nd year from graphic design and ict and like ict a lot more and feel I can get a D* whereas in graphic design I feel I will probably get a C (if that) so I was wondering if dropping graphic design would put me at a disadvantage to applying to uni’s like Aston for computer science so I’m unsure what to drop from graphic design and btec level 3 subsidiary diploma ICT

Why do you feel like you’ll get a C in graphics? Is it hard?
I feel like you should stick with graphics it seems weird to do ICT when you’re doing computer science

If you're applying for a Computer Science degree then IT/ICT will be your go-to, especially if it means you'll achieve a better grade. Generally a university will ask that you study an A-level or A-level equivalent that is related to the course that you're applying to. But it's always best to check the websites of all of the universities you hope to apply for next year.

In my experience, as someone who studies a Game Art BA, I needed an A-level or equivalent in a relevant subject. This could be Art, Fine Art, Architecture, IT/ICT, Media, etc. As long as I had studied one of those, it was my grade that really mattered.

In your case, if you really insisted on completing Graphic Design, then taking up Computer Science related projects at home would give you an advantage. You could begin to learn a programming language on CodeAcademy.com or something similar. If you wanted to go the extra mile, you could get in contact with a student already studying Computer Science or even a lecturer at one of the universities you're interested in, and ask them for advice directly.
