U need at least 5 GCSEs (including math and English) at Grade 4.

Your predictions are fine for A level

Look at the entry requirements for universities you are considering. There are many Russell Group unis, and they don't all ask for the same thing.

You have at least 5 GCSEs 9-4 which is a good start (although the 4 in your proposed degree subject might be a bit off putting), but with those predictions you'd likely be fine for Cardiff (ABB-BBB but apparently most students have BBD), Loughborough (AAA but students have ABB), Liverpool (ABB with students achieving ABB), found this info on theuniguide

There are also lots of non RG options that are good, maybe look into some of those to be safe 🙂 If I were you I'd put maybe Loughborough (non RG but very good) as an aspirational choice, Cardiff and/or Liverpool for attainable RG, then a couple lower non RG

Thanks. I'm thinking KCL, QMUL, Nottingham, Royal Holloway, and one more

According to the UCAS offer rate calculator with ABB you have a 58% chance at KCL and 90% at QMUL, Nottingham and Royal Holloway - but I would say don't take these as definite because they don't factor in your GCSEs (admissions tutors may think it's unlikely you could actually get ABB because of them although it isn't impossible; I got 9999866644 at GCSE then A*A*A*A at A level so a comparable jump) - could you resit computer science?

According to theuniguide.co.uk, KCL's entry requirements are AAA but most students actually have A*AA; QMUL require AAB but students with ABB; Nottingham require AAA-AAB but students with AAB; Royal Holloway require AAB-ABB but students with BBC(!!!)

Hope that helps and best of luck 🙂
