    Hello all,
    I would like to take computer related A Levels.

    Although I'm not sure what to take or where to start taking A Levels?
    Hope you can advise .
    Thank you.

    I am thinking of
    AS Graphics Design
    AS Media Studies
    AS Physics
    AS Mathematics
    AS Computing
    AS Electronics
    AS Further Mathematics - possibly .

    as possible A Level subjects, essentially as long as its computer related.

    Or would I be better of taking Computing or Computer Science at...

    Leeds University (Computing)
    Sheffield University (Foundation - Comp Sci)
    Bath University (Foundation - Comp Sci)
    Newcastle (Computer Science) - Don't know much about Newcastle or like it too much.
    Reading (Computer Science) - Don't know much about Reading or like it too much.

    Hope you can help, thanks. .

    I mean in September .

    I would like better going to a great Computing/Computer Science degree and being ready for it without A Levels in Computer subjects, because I won't get a good computer career with just A Levels.

    you do realise to go to uni you need to have A Levels or equivelant qualifications first!

    so id recomend doing Maths, Physics and Computing at A Level and then going to uni unless you already have A Level or equivelan qualifications.
