is computer science harder than further maths ( a level) watch

    • Thread Starter

    i was thinking of taking computer science because I thought it would be easier than further maths , but now people are telling me that computer science is more difficult.
    and which would be more beneficial and what would universities like more.
    (btw I wanting to do pharmacy)

    For computer science Further maths is better but for pharmacy it doesnt matter that much. Pick the one you would enjoy more.

    honestly i rather take something that easy but still kind of related to pharmacy, but i dont know which one is the easier one.

    Programming (or, more accurately, "computational thinking" - i.e. the mindset required for thinking about programming and problem solving using computer languages) is usually the thing which people find difficult about Computer Science - the rest of it usually doesn't cause much of a problem.

    Whether you'll find it difficult or not really depends how you feel about programming. If you're interested in giving it a try, spend some time working through these and see how you feel about it: https://www.codecademy.com/learn/learn-python
