I'd consider STEM A levels as:
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
Maths
Further Maths
Computer Science
Engineering


Then there's a few others which are technically still STEM like Psychology, Medicinal Sciences and Design and Technology.

If a uni or job is asking for stem subjects the 7 at the top are typically what they mean but some do accept the others.

I'd email/call them to ask what they consider stem subjects. I'd say your safest bet would be cs (if your really hate maths), but check with them now before confirming your choices

You should call them to check. You’re right they’re probably not
