Hello guys, i was wondering what should i do to be a software engineer or get somewhere in that lane.
These are my GCSE options
And i wanted to do maths, further maths and physics for A-levels but right now I'm not so good at maths and when i try i always get distracted and lose concentration and i don't grasp it easily which me even more frustrated and stressed out. I was hoping to get a level 8 for maths and physics so i can do it for a level but I'm struggling a lot. And in school in not in the higher set which means they wont teach me the higher topics but I'm still doing higher for maths.
So if you guys would clear my doubts and struggles and give me some advise and tips so i can move forward and get better at these subjects. I would appreciate a lot.

I've got no interest in computers so this info is all from google, please don't hold me to it! But it might give you a starting point.
It seems like for any related degree you're gonna need maths a-level to get into most places, but I had a look at Essex and you could do computer science there with a C in GCSE maths? Aberystwyth seem to be the same too but obviously the higher ranking places will want the A-Level to at least a B.
I'd recommend having an honest chat to both your school teacher and prospective sixth form/college teacher - is there any extra support you could be getting? I know my local college will give you extra lessons if you don't get a 7 in maths but want to continue it.
Sorry I can't be more help but I hope you can figure it out!
