If you wanted to take Computer Science for a degree, why didn't you
take A-level maths? What A-levels did you actually take? Not having A
level maths is going to make life unpleasant in a Comp Sci
environment.

Most employers really don't give a rats-ass WHERE you got your degree
from. After around 5 years in industry we don't actually care whether
you have a degree or not.
