Looking through the crystal ball

I’m looking at university courses to take after my A-Levels to make sure I take the right A-Levels to take said courses. I made an account on the UCAS website and I took this thing called the stamford test, here’s what subject areas it threw up:

  1. Modern Foreign languages
  2. Media/Radio/TV/Film
  3. General Engineering
  4. Electronic Engineering
  5. Surveying (I’m not quite sure what this is)
  6. Arts and Crafts
  7. Town and Country planning
  8. International Studies
  9. Politics Based
  10. Computer Engineering
  11. Mechanical Engineering
  12. Building/Architecture
  13. Design Studies
  14. Physics Based
And here are 6 courses which, would be on my short-list:

University of Derby
Computer Games Modelling & Animation

Requires at least 2 A-Levels and ‘any Art/Design subject at grade D’. Above 200 UCAS points.
Computer Games Programming
Requires at least 2 A-Levels or the equivalent. Above 200 UCAS points.
University of Cumbria
Requires any subject related to the course at grade B (I assume this would be English). Above 240 UCAS points.
Bournemouth University
Computer-Aided Product Design
Requires an interview, >260 UCAS points and ‘Key Skills such as use of ICT and Communication’.
Warwick University
Politics with International Studies
Requires 3 A-Levels, the eqivalent of 2 A grades and 1 B grade. Also, you get to spend a year abroad!
Staffordshire University
Requires >180 UCAS points.
