Which degree is better to do and which degree leads to better career prosepects.The entry requirements at top unis such as UCL seem to be much higher for CS compared to EEE so this makes me think that EEE may be easier and therefore less respected.I am predicted 3 A stars and one A in A level Maths,Physics,Economics and Further maths.I have 6 a stars,3 As and 1B at GCSE.One of the As was in computing(Grade7).Which course would i be able to get into at top uni with these grades?

There are numerous separate questions here -

1) Two different subjects - only you can decide which one interest you enough to spend the next 3 years studying it.

2) Entry requirements have nothing to do with the 'easiness' or the course, its 'reputation' or your career prospects.

3) 'Get into'? This isnt a game. Perhaps you'd like to start with thinking about why you want to go to University at all.

The government didn’t do 2 studies into why EEE has a higher unemployment rate than English or media studies :indiff:

They did for CS.

CS is higher employment and EEE course is not reputed I was also planning to do EEE but dropped this idea as this is not popular as compared to other courses. I am lucky that I have Economics as well now thinking towards maths with Economics LSE

No it isn’t. CS has a dreadful unemployment rate - so bad there has been 2 national investigations into why.
