I'm thinking of switching from RS to computer science but I don't like computer science and do not understand it but it'll be useful in the future and RS won't be but I'm getting good grades in RS

I’ve did RS last year (got a 9) and I’m doing computer science currently. Personally I prefer RS 100% partly because it’s more interesting and I was good at it. To be honest I don’t see computer science being useful in the future unless you’re going into computers/technology. Something like RS can be applied to almost any workplace as you will always have people of different religions, and if you manage a team or want to get on with colleagues it’s useful to have to understand peoples thinking.

HELL NO. I know this is subjective to the individual but I got all 7s,8s and a 9 and then a 4 in computer science. its extremely hard. the highest mark in my class was a 6 and the boy was very intelligent. RS is a lot easier and less stress. stick with RS.

RE is easier (just memorising ****) but if you’re more interested in CS then go for CS

I agree in my mocks I got a 4 and it would be too hard to learn the whole spec in a short amount of time
