Top-level scientific courses after 12th is a broad area to cover. It's good that you narrowed it down to computers. The first things that come into my mind are majorly associated with computational application. And obviously, they are science courses.

So first, CS and CA are probably the most common choices. And don’t take these courses mainstream. Because later on in your bachelor's you will meet the requirement of STEM computer science master courses. And these will ask for related subjects in your bachelor's. So in my experience, I think these are the best options for you -

1. BSc Computer Science
2. BSc Computer Applications
3. BSc Business Analytics
4. BSc Data Science
5. BSc Computer Engineering

I would suggest any one of the first two if you are ready to explore the field and later select a master in the field. BSc Business Analytics is for a specific purpose. Like if someone is aligned toward an MBA later on or a management career. But if you are sure that you want some specialized jobs in data, strategy, analytics, engineering, the latter two options are much better. I mean I can clearly see some students opting for any of these courses and then pursuing a master's in data science or computational engineering.

The entrance exams you need for Canada and the UK are not some big names. I guess you are familiar with names like IELTS or TOEFL? Basically, it is a language proficiency test that is required to study abroad. Other than that you do not really need any test for a course after 12th i.e., bachelor level. Some students prefer to take the GRE/GMAT before for their master's preparation. But that's up to your choice.

Do you need any other information? Let me know and I shall try to help you as much as I can.
