So I really like computers, ICT and whatnot. So I decided to choose GCSE Computing, but for some reason the school "didn't have the resources". I picked ICT instead and boy, is it boring. We do stuff like spread sheets, designing posters, etc all lesson and it just gets on my nerves!
What do I do? I even spoke to a teacher about doing it for A level and she said that the 6th form at my school may not even offer it...
My love for computers may cause be to move to another school for 6th form, but the friendly environment that I encounter here is pretty good too. Can someone suggest me some options?
I'm pretty much top of the class, going above and beyond on every task, but I don't want to seem like a know-it-all so I rarely complain in class.
I have a problem Watch

If you're considering it as a career, you should try hard to take it for A-level, either at your current school or another sixth form/college.
If you don't take it for A-level, it's not the end of the world. Computing degree course usually ask for maths/further maths and you don't need computing to get in. Look at some entry requirements.
You can always self-study computing in your spare time.Last edited by morgan8002; 29-01-2015 at 19:17.

From my experience, computing is not worth such a drastic move. If you are interested in pursuing computer science or software engineering, take maths and sciences and start learning to code in your spare time.
