Maths+ CompSci joint uni course- Y12

I wanted to ask what the top universities would be for joint maths+ cs. My predicteds are A*A*A*A* and i am taking fm, maths, physics, and cs. I have had a look at the rankings and course structure and so far have thought of UCL, imperial, warwick, durham and unsure on the last choice as not sure whether its worth applying to oxford. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks
Got to be worth considering Oxford if you're looking at Warwick or Imperial - you'll be sitting the MAT anyway, right?

I don't know enough to advise on the Oxford admission process, but I know that it's tripped up students who had the right predicted grades and seemed academically suited for the best courses in the country. It's a significant enough process that there are companies that provide paid applicant support to help students navigate it. Not endorsing those companies, but you'll have the best chance if you can get the right support. Have students from your school previously been successful in applications to Oxbridge? If so, there's bound to be someone there to help you.

Yes, pretty sure i will sit the MAT and STEP. Pretty sure we have a few past oxbridge students, but not too many at all
