    Hello, i really enjoy both and i would like to know which one will make kit easier for me to get a job.

    Not that computer science is 'easy' or anything like that, and I don't have experience of either degree but I would imagine that Chemistry at uni level is really really difficult, maybe one of the most difficult degrees out there. Not that this should stop you if it is your passion.

    Also, CompSci at uni can get quite mathematical - make sure that you're prepared for this?

    Depending on the uni, both courses can offer placement years - worth thinking about if you want to boost your chances of getting a job either way. I'm on my placement for maths this year and I strongly recommend doing it.

    Lastly, you can always do an undergrad in Chemistry then a Masters in CompSci. This would be good if you're leaning more towards Chemistry, and I guess depending on what you want to do and the experience and the job you want a Masters would complement that nicely for a job application.
