Comp sci without A level math

In doing a BTEC in IT and I'm predicted D*D*D*. The problem is I don't do A level math, with restricts me a LOT in choosing universities :frown: what university courses could I apply to? I want to try and go to the best university possible without math XD maybe foundation years? Is that the only option

Hi there!
If you are looking to study a related subject at university, here at Kent we have Computer Science that requires BTEC Distinction, Distinction and Merit to apply. A Level subjects are not specified so maths you will not be disadvantaged. As long as you have a grade 4 in GCSE Mathematics and the required BTEC grades you should be fine. I will attach the link to the entry requirement page if you want to browse for more information: https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/124/computer-science

I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to ask :smile:
