My studies are all based on Edexcel, not Cambridge.
I have finished seven GCE O level subjects.. (Eng Lang, Commerce, Economics, Physics, Pure Maths, Maths B, Computing Studies) and all grades I’ve recieved are in the ranges of A-C (my science subjects are all Cs.)
Right now I am taking my A level studies in only Maths & Physics..(Which are all units of Physics & Mechanics & Core Maths)
Notice that I am studying only 2 A level subjects. I was going to take Computing for A levels but I heard from people and rumors that once a student completes A level computing, he/she will not be benefited as much and it is therefore not worth taking it. I think Computing for A level has low demands and is’nt much rewarding after completion. I know I finished O-level GCE Computing which made me thought this is enough with my A level GCE Maths & Physics to study Computer Engineering. Well, what do you guys think? Should I take A-level GCE computing? I know there are a lot of work involved in A-Level GCE Computing than compared with O-Level GCE Computing..but at the end will it be worth it? Are 2 A-level GCE Subjects enough for me to carry on with Computer Engineering? I also heard 2 is the minimum requirement to progress in the university line.
Please I do not want to waste my time, and I need to make the right decision before I am late. =(
Many UK universities require three A levels for entry, not just two. Some only require two, but I’d hate for you to decide to attend the perfect UK uni, only to find that it requires three, so take three!!!
Math and physics are good A levels if you want to study computer engineering in the UK. The third A level you take is up to you. Should it be computing? If you want it to be, that’s fine. But if you’d rather do that third A level in another subject, that’s okay, too. Which O levels did you do the best in?
