    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...

    WHO IS BETTER RESPECT:A COMPUTER SCIENTIST/SOFTWARE ENGINEER/HARDWARE ENGINEER OR A DOCTOR/SURGEON AND WHY...THANKS.
    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!

    We can't really answer this question for you but as far as I'm aware there is quite a lot of demand for CS skills atm so as long as you develop a lot of projects and get a lot of coding experience you should be fine. It sounds as though your passion is for computer science so I think you should do what you can be happy in

    Do what you enjoy.

    Under no circumstance should you allow someone to convince you into a career path, if you really don't want to do it.
