Did you do anything related to computer science for GSCE? I was in similar situation like you. I just finished applied science and wanted to apply for software engineering, but my university told me that I don't anything related to computers, neither from college or high school ( I could have taken a foundation year but I didn't want to). Maybe your university will let you do it? I mean they let me do English and History degree which is also not related to applied science, neither I did history in high school. But I guess they didn't have enough students for English and History degree and I both degrees were fine for me. Hope this helps for you.

Check if Manchester university does foundation year and what they want for it. Because sometimes even their foundation year has pretty high entry levels.

I got into Manchester Met university.
