    I don't really know what to choose between chemistry and computing. I don't really know much about computing but it seems kind of interesting to me at the momentrance but I worry if it is hard to score an A for computing is A levels.
    For chemistry, I have ~75% result now but I am not really interested interested chemistry. By the way, is qualitative analysis important interested A levels?
    Any suggestion on which interested should choose? ( by the way, I m choosing maths& econs& physics for the other 3 subjects. I am also looking into aerospace or computer engineering or economy or finance analysis as a career in future)

    Do further maths if you want to do engineering but if you don't want to do further maths do chemistry it's more useful.

    As someone taking both, I definitely much prefer computing (although I'm only 5 weeks in :lol:) I think in part it is because my chemistry teacher isn't very good, but I think the variety over the computing course for me makes it much more interesting. The only thing I'll miss is that it's only 20% coursework, so there's not terribly much programming involved unfortunately.
    If you already aren't interested in chemistry then don't take it, unless it's just the course you find boring, and you enjoy further reading around the subject. You don't need chemistry for any of the potential careers you are looking at (although you won't need computing either).
    As said above, would you consider further maths? That certainly sounds like it would be at least as useful as computing, potentially more especially for the engineering route.
