    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...

    HOW MUCH DO COMPUTER SCIENTIST/SOFTWARE ENGINEERS/HARDWARE ENGINEERS MAKE ON AVERAGE?
    Do the earn more at top firms like google and apple?
    Will a degree at a top university be of great benefit for these top companies?
    Is starting a successful company very difficult now due to giants like apple,etc...

    My dad is a surgeon so i was wondering how does the pay compare to surgeons?
    How earns more(regardless of schooling)?
    How much do the top of their respective professions earn in each profession?

    ALSO,as i said i love computer science and i am NOT doing it for the money but i am very curious about the money...Please don't say follow your passion as i already am(computing)...

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