Then I'm not really sure on how to answer you still I don't really know what a CS-related company would want out of their applicants but from what I saw most unis besides oxbridge and imperial (them being the highest) only care about having A-level Maths although you should do your own research into where you want to study and what their requirements are.

I'm doing GCSE now but when I was researching for a-levels and uni. I'm pretty sure most if not all universities say that taking computing at a-level is not required or just recommended. They also don't require Further maths and this applies to even the topmost unis such as Oxford and Cambridge.I think you have a fairly good chance as long as you get good grades in the subjects you do and show an interest in the subject. I also would prioritise maths if I were you because that what they would mostly use as a guideline when comparing to other candidates. I'm also planning on studying Comp sci at Uni.
good luck to you!
