I am confused as to which would be the best possible way to go about this, I picked my subjects in year 8 and started them in year 9. My parents made me pick computer science and I didn't enjoy it at all but I could not do much about it due to covid and lockdown. I am now in year 10 and I'm struggling a lot, I hate the subject, I am finding it difficult in class and I have no passion to continue it yet my parents won't listen to me and I think it's too late to switch to another subject as there has already been a year with it yet I don't think I can continue with this subject at all, I should not have been made to pick when I was 12. I am confused with what I can do now, do you have any advice?

I'm not sure how many GCSE's u do but if u rlly feel that u can't continue with computer science maybe you could ask ur school to drop it. However if you feel that u could at least get a passing grade it would be good to keep it as sometimes universities/ employers require a specific number of GCSE's to be accepted

I made a very long post about advice on dropping a gcse subject here: When and how to drop a gcse subject BEST ADVICE -copy n paste title into search and it’ll come up. I’m also in year 10 and I was able to swap my subject in November. Read my post then PM me if you want more advice!

It’s a bit late in the year to change an option and it might be difficult for you to catch up on all of the content.
Having said that, if the new option you now want to take on it something you feel won’t be stressful and a burden to you, then go for it!
