    So im starting alevels this week and i still dont know what to do haha.

    Im thinking maths economics and computing, however, ive never really programmed in my life? so will i find it hard??? Im interested in how computers work and all that, and ive tried to take my laptop apart for months (but couldnt find the right screwdriver etc etc). If not my other option is geography, which i got an A at gcse. I dont like to write essays though? So will geography be for me???

    Also, im really into maths, should I take further maths aswell and drop it at AS because its not like I will have to do much extra work... if i fail, it i fail it? I got an A* maths and an A in further maths GCSE

    I think if you take computing solely because you're kinda interested in your laptop then you're gonna have a bad time. Also there aren't any uni courses that require computing so it might restrict your options. IMO pick a science you're interested in, unless you're super into geography in which case its a solid choice, but i've heard there's a fair amount of writing involved.
