What are you interested in? Is there an option of computer science diploma or something similar you can research into? Your a level choices are very dependant on what you enjoy- it may be worth considering what aspects of computer science to enjoy and then seeing if that applies to any other subjects

Well I really want to go into animation or graphic designing. Web development is also one of the options

Creative Media might be a good choice!! It's pretty simple and relatively entertaining. It'll help with graphic design

You should then keep physics, chemistry, business studies and English including computer science. I’m currently doing that but I also have maths.

Well, at degree level CS normally requires A-level Maths. This is because computer science as a field is necessarily mathematical.

If that's not what you're aiming for though then just take whatever interests you most and follow those interests :smile:
