    I have the ability to do the iGCSE Science course, which means one of my options has been taken up. I only have one option remaining outside the core subjects, and I have Computing in that slot, and I will not change that.
    I think Electronics would be much more relevant to my later life, as I wish to go into something technical, and I would like to study Computer Science at university.
    But with iGCSE, I would find it easier as I would not have to come up with my own experiments, which I find quite difficult.
    Even if I take iGCSE, I can still do Electronics at A-Level.

    Ideas would be appreciated.

    I would highly recommend doing iGCSE Science over iGCSE Electronics since iGCSE Science is a more respected and traditional iGCSE. If you have your heart set on an electronics based subject at university then do Electronics at A-level instead.

    Taking sciences at IGCSE level is very useful (if not essential) to get into university so you haven't got much of an option. Sciences are much more respected by universities and will provide you with a skill set that is of use. Take the sciences now and take electronics as an A Level subject. Plus, physics is pretty relevant to computer science so dropping it now would be a big no-no.
