    Hi guys,
    I am 20 years and in September I am going to start an access course in college. An access course is basically a fast track course which lasts for one year and if you pass everything you do the same subject at uni.

    What I am struggling with is is deciding which course to do in the first place. I have made up my mind that i want to go to college and thereafter go to uni but even at this stage i am unsure which course to do.

    I am undecided between doing the Computing course or the Humanities and Social Sciences course.

    In school I wasn't the brightest of kids and I just managed to scrape through my GCSE's so I cannot say which subject I would be better at.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    OK. Let's see. On one hand we have a field that has one of the highest rising rates of future job opportunities and security, and on the other hand we have one with drastically decreasing barely existent job opportunities.Hmm...which to pick?
    Mos def go with the Computing course. No question about this!

    Hi thank you for replying. But could I pleases ask you why you think computing is better. Have you ever done an access course? I am really nervous about it. :/

    Hi im so sorry your message didn't load properly the first time around on my computer. Thank you. I was also thinking about doing the computing course. I have a confirmed place at college but because September seems so far away I am having second thoughts about everything as usual.

    But thank you so much for your advice, I really appreciate it
