I'm going to choose my GCSE's this year and I am unsure of what to choose I am currently top of my class in Computer science and triple science. I would like to know the options to get into a space agency, and if its possible to get into NASA. I know NASA is not keen about sharing classified info so this is a little about me, I have a British citizenship but I was born in Afghanistan.

If I'm not wrong, NASA doesn't employ non-us citizens (but there are exceptionally rare cases); either you need American citizenship or be a dual citizen.

Well for US citizenship you have 2 options: You can either live and work a permanent job in the US for 5 years continuously after which you apply for the citizenship or if you're married to a US citizen the time gets reduced to 3 years. It's definitely possible but you won't be able to immediately work with NASA in the US.

Any other Space agencies that do not require me changing my citizenship?

Might be a good idea to go to an American university. One good scheme for doing this is the Sutton Trust Scheme; it sponsors you to go to university in America. This would be after A-Levels though, and you'd have to do pretty good in them.

As mentioned, NASA does not recruit non citizens. You can gain US citizenship and still keep your British citizenship btw.
