I'm going to be pushing my UCAS stuff through pretty soon, but I'm having a last-minute change of heart. The 2 career choices which always interested me were software engineering/computing, and finance and investment banking. I decided to stick with investment banking and finance and hence planned to apply for economics this year for uni. I have done work experience at 2 banks, have tailored all my extracurricular activities to do with finance and of course written my personal statement for economics. But I have always had this want to study computer science, and now when it actually comes to applying, I am having a change of heart and am really wanting to do computing instead. I don't do computing a level, I have no work experience or any real experience except computing GCSE and python classes from school. Is it worth trying to turn it around and go for comp sci now, or should I just wait it out and apply for econ. and hope the feeling subsides?
Last minute Uni course change HELP? Watch

For a computer science degree, you usually need maths a level, so you would still have a chance even without computing. If you're really not sure, you could always take a gap year before applying to think about what you want to do. Personally, I wouldn't apply for economics if my heart wasn't in it -3 years is a long time to study a subject you don't like!
