the deadlines for my a level options are coming soon but i cant decide between two paths, either

go down a comp sci path and pick maths, economics and comp sci

or go down biology route and pick maths, chem and bio.

ive always liked computers and computer science at GCSE and know how wide of a range of jobs there are, also knowing the salaries are good makes it more appealing and i have the economics in case of I go down a finance route. however at the moment im a little more interested in biology, specifically in endocrinology. is there anyone who can help decide

How to Choose 6th Form subjects - https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/a-l...-your-subjects

Two Uni course lists - check the subjects you are interested in to see which subjects each wants.
Liverpool - https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/un...duate/courses/
Sussex - https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/
Or more specialised Biomed courses at Bristol - http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cellmolmed/...undergraduate/

Endocrinology is a specialism within Medicine - or you can do a Masters degree to do research in this area after doing a relevant undergrad degree - ie.https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgrad...ate-pg-diploma

You don't need to do computer science at A level to do it at uni, only maths so in my opinion if you prefer biology go for it and you can always do a computer science degree at the end of it anyway? (while you can't study medicine unless you take chemistry)

it's not for everyone, but i went down the compsci route, and have been having loads of fun with it - if you have any specific questions lmk.

there's so much diversity in computer science as a whole, it's difficult to find a specific area that doesn't interest you.

Yeah, that's deffo an option. Even if it's just for the first few weeks to see which subjects you like and which you want to drop/change.

for computer science at uni you only need maths (further maths for top unis), so thats something to take into consideration.
