    I have always been very interested and passionate about computer science and knew i was going to a degree(s) in it and become a software/hardware engineer/computer scientist(forgive me for incorrect syntax if applicable)...

    Recently i have been reflecting upon my choice and confirming that is what i want to do for the rest of my life...

    I already know that is what i want to do but as i said i am just confirming so...

    i am currently at the start of Y11...

    I am one of the top in my class,predicted most A*'s and A's and do computing at GCSE and do many Extra curricular and also many related to computer science....
    I am truly passionate about the subject and would like to study it at Cambridge...


    have seen many CEO's like satya nadella and other who worked in companies like Microsoft and were very successful in their relevant fields and rised up the ranks...

    Say,i or person x was to work at these computer as a software/hardware engineers...How are the careers prospects...?Is it possible to work hard and make the company a notable amount of money and rise up the rank eventually to a potion like CTO or CEO?

    OR is this incorrect and is it only for business/managerial position,is so what is the highest position you can reach for computer science...

    Any other advice will also be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
