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...
HOWEVER,my dad is a surgeon and he says that the career is OK and is not encouraging nor discouraging me to go into...But my mum and other relatives are insisting/persuading me to go into medicine and become a doctor/surgeon?
I much prefer and i absolutely love/am obsessed with computer science and very talented at it and also at maths and sciences...
However,my parents say that i am smart enough for medicine and thus i should go for it(I know) and that it is a more noble professions and finally that it pays better(IS THIS TRUE,I THOUGH COMPUTER SCIENCE WAS VERY WELL PAYING???)
What should i do,They are happy with computer science but i'm very confused as even though computing is almost part of me i fear there words may be better than mine due to experience???
Any other advice will also be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
Cs vs med...

CS would mean you would stand a chance of getting a job which pays more than medicine. But medicine would give you job security (ie a guarantee of a job if you pass). Its your choice what you want to do in the end. The pay from medicine isn't bad at all.
