physics during gap year help!!

i'm currently unsure about what to do at uni, but i'm certain it'll be something heavily math-related. i'm hovering over maths, jmc, and engineering at the moment. i do maths fm computer science and want to take physics during my gap year. i have two questions:

will unis look down on me for not taking all 4 a-levels at once? particularly the top ones

how would i go about doing the physics a-level? where would i take it, and how would i go about the practical endorsement?

money shouldn't be an issue as i will be working

first of all I would talk to a teacher or uniadvisor about whether you have to do physics as some good unis may not need it. I'm not to knowledgeable on how you would go about taking it after leaving but I think a college would accept you and you would only have to go about twice a week. you could always contact an exam board directly and ask them how to do it aswell.

no uni would care that you did it separately but a uni with interviews may ask why
