Cambridge A-level Mathematics(9709) Components Choice

Hello guys!
I am in A2/A-level and have subjects Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. I have to choose whether l will take Statistics(S2) or Mechanics(M1) with Pure Mathematics(P3). I want to pursue Computer Science related field in the future. Please suggest should I choose S2 or M1? In AS/A1 I gave S1 and I pretty much liked studying it.

Mechanics will complement Physics, and stats is useful for computer science (perhaps not for the A-level course, but definitely in general). Both will be useful to you in different ways. However if you want to pursue a Computer Science related field in the future, I would say statistics will be more helpful.
