Will my progress to uni be hampered if I drop A-Level Chemistry? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently studying CIE Physics, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Chemistry (currently going through AS). I do not enjoy studying Chemistry, I find it involves more memorization that I'd like. My question is will I be hampering my progress to universities if I dropped Chemistry? I'm thinking of doing Computer Science, or maybe Electrical/Electronic Engineering.

    I don't think chemistry is needed to do computer science, although it depends on where your applying. For my choices, none ask for a subject in science although higher ranked unis will.

    If you are deciding to go to the top 10 - 15 unis then maybe you want to keep on doing it, but don take my word, do your research on the unis.

    It should be fine bro as your other subjects are perfect for Comp Sci, but your excuse is not good ,and chemistry is a lot of understanding and application compared to memorising tbh . xD
