Should I take computer science as an A-level?

I'm currently a year 11 and I'm in the process of choosing my a-level options. I've decided on picking maths and economics, but I have to decide between history and computer science for my third option, can anyone offer any advice either way?
I'm most interested in taking comp sci, but I didn't take it as a gcse choice, although I've been told that doesn't matter. I took history, french, art (I regret that so bad), further maths and statistics as my gcse option subjects. I'm in all top sets and perform best in maths.
I have very little programming skills, although I've started a course on Codecademy and I'm very willing to learn more before I start college.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice or an opinion since I'm more stressed about it than I probably should be.

I do computing science and it's pretty fun 🙂 would recommend
The NEA assessment is tedious and will take up a lot of your time.

Maths, Further Maths, Economics and History would be ideal. 🙂
