    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...

    How stable are jobs in computer science...
    My parents want me to go into medicine(huh) and say computer science is a unstable field but is this true?
    It seems to be that it is the fastest changing and growing field in the world and it has only been around in the past century...
    Also,i have heard it is in very high demand and that it is basically the fourth science...
    i agree with that as the world will forever need computers in cars/rockets/planes/boats/computers/phones/everything!!!

    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...

    I KNOW THAT THERE MAY INTERNET INFO BUT PLEASE COULD YOU CONDENSE IT INTO BULLET POINTS FROM EXPERIENCES?

    What factor will university like Cambridge or any uni in general look at...

    So far i the following:

    1)UMS
    2)UCAS
    3)Grades
    4)Extra curriculars
    5)Interview(if applicable)

    WHAT ELSE IS THERE AND COULD YOU EXPLAIN IN DETAIL THE ABOVE?

    THANKS!
