An Advanced GCE AS or full A Level in Software Systems Development combines well with almost all other AS and Advanced GCE subjects. Taken with Mathematics and Science, it supports applications for any IT-based University courses. Taken with Languages or Arts it supports an equally wide range of university courses such as Communications, Media, Business and Management.
