I have started again as a first year this year (so finish in 2019), due to a change in course I wanted to do. I am currently on the BTEC IT Extended Diploma and my predicted grades are D*D*D*. The IT course doesn't have a maths element in it, so I was considering taking a core maths AS level so that I have more doors open for when I leave college, I got a B almost an A at GCSE, however I know that maths is not really my strong point. I'm trying to find out as much as possible what is available to me for when I finish, so that I can start constructing my personal statement and adding things to my CV so that I have a strong foot in the door, so to speak.
The issue that I have is that I'm not entirely sure what I want to do when I leave college. Yes it's going to be something computer related but I want to find a degree that is mainly coursework based and it interests me or an apprenticeship. I was originally going to study Cyber Forensics however, as it's such a narrow branch (3 universities offer it in the UK , and there are barely any apprenticeships in it) I've come away from wanting to study it. I seem to excel at the programming side of things and take to languages really quickly. Robotics and AI interest me also. I enjoy research tasks and I really like studying and learning new things.
Has anyone studied anything Computer related at university (not necessarily just computer science) that they would think would suit me?
Have you got yours?
