If I am considering to study Computer Science at a top university, should my A-level choices be:
maths, further maths, physics
or
maths, further maths, computer science?

I have heard that A-level Computer Science is really difficult. How difficult is it?

edit: I heard that A-level Computer Science is not required by universities. Why?

oxford
A*AA, with the A* in Maths, Further Maths or Computing/Computer Science
Cambridge
A*A*A, with the in Maths & Further Maths
computer science would be better if you definitely know that you want to do that as is more direct with the course you want to follow up with

physics would be good if you know you might change your mind and is more open I think
