I'm about to pick my GCSEs and I'm torn between triple science or computer science. Could you give me some pros and cons of computer science? Cheers!

I do computer science and it was possibly the worst decision i ever made. Personally the teaching at my school isn’t great and as i’m not particularly passionate about the subject i don’t look forward to the lessons or enjoy revision. The coding aspect for OCR is almost non-existent so that part of it isnt very appealing and as a subject it’s not intuitive so it takes some time to understand.

However!
- Your teachers may be better (u could check past gcse results / ask people in the year above)
- if you have a passion for it, you’ll probably have fun doing it
- most of the topics (at least for OCR) are pretty easy once u get the hang of them

I think the hardest thing for me was picking up a subject i had never done before so you really have to start from scratch whereas with triple science you’ve probably been doing it since y7 so you kind of know what it’ll be like and u know the basics too

Hope that helped! x

The problem with computer science is that either your job will be automated or outsourced - there's nothing you can do better than someone in India.

It’s not like a GCSE qualification is going to get you a job, at that level it’s more a question of preference ...
