Just finish all your GCSEs first, and if you can get an ICT or Computer Science GCSE that would be helpful for transitioning to ALevels (but not necessary). Then complete your ALevels, I would suggest either Computer Science or ICT ALevel, Maths ALevel and then whatever else you enjoy.

better CS courses will be A*AA and higher, and will require A level maths
lesser CS courses will go lower and may not require A level maths

you need a GCSE in maths regardless. all other GCSEs are important for your general application
you ought to do A level maths for CS, you may also benefit from further maths (at the competitive end)

I think they mean the other GCSE's you're doing as well. For example, my school did compulsory English; lit and lang, Maths, Science, and R.E, then you chose 4 others, the five GSCE'S can be your compulsory and your other subject. My apologies if that didn't make any sense

There are times such are this where I wish Decision Mathematics (which includes Algorithms and Graph Theory), and Matrices were part of the regular Mathematics A Level, instead of the Further Mathematics one. Most people who wish to study computer science will not choose the F. Mathematics A Level, and so they will miss out on these key topics, which are very very useful for anyone doing a degree in CS.

P.S. I realize we're talking about GCSEs, I just thought this was relevant.
