    I am currently stuck between Computer Science and Game design. I like to spend time on photoshop editing images and drawing various posters/ character designs but not so really much in computer game construction. However, I like the idea of coding and have an interest in computers, I learn coding languages sometimes and watch tech vloggers. I am currently taking Computer Science and Graphics for my GCSEs; however, in Computer Science I hate the idea of doing write-ups like making testing tables and analysing my code as there is usually a lot to do (I only like the coding side), I hate the same thing in Graphics too (the market analysis and stuff) so, I'm currently stuck since what I choose right now for A levels will affect what I do in the future .

    For game design, computer science is likely to be more important however graphics is also very useful for that industry. Can you not do both for your A levels? If you have to choose only one, go with the subject you enjoy the most.

    I need to choose one because If i want to take Computer Science at higher level I need to take Maths, Further Maths, Computer Science and Physics( which I don't mind much) but if I take Game Design I can either go to a Design College and do maths and Further Maths. The thing is I really enjoy both subjects, like they're on the same level...
