Yes, I made them up.
IT A-level won't help either.
Maths however, will. Particularly further maths. Not only is it relevant in many places, but it shows you've got the right mindset to be able to do a computer science degree.
Thanks for all the advice.

Well, obviously you are a clued up person.
Manchester is supposedly the best CS department in the country too (not sure how they work that out though - % going into a job after graduation I think).
And Manchester rules. Kicks the backside off London (yes, I have been there - I used to live there)
University is about learning more than just your subject. Go live in a vibrant city and enjoy yourself.
(Leeds can be replaced by Newcastle or Manchester in this instance).
Oh yeah, sod Computer Science at A-level. All you'll learn is how to make pretty pages in Word :)
Science is the way to go. Do Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths. And Latin..... :)
I would suggest Physics, maths, another science and a subject you like doing.
Also get a head start. Learn some programming if you don't already know any. If you want help, info or suggestions just post on here.
Mahs however, is vital. I reccomend you take Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and maybe Further Maths too.
