I did triple science IGCSE but I want to switch to maybe ict in Alevel, would that be a good decision?? I feel like if my bases arent strong I wont be able to handle A level ict...
I have a lot of doubts on which career path to go on but I am leaning towards computer science? But Im weak in maths and my average stanine is 4-5 so would taking futher maths in A level be difficult for me?? Ugh im so confused :")

Many people who get 7s and above in GCSE maths have struggled with A-level maths; if you're only just managing to pass the GCSE then further maths is out of the question.

Do you want to do ICT or computer science? They are quite different subjects.

You don't need a university degree in computer science to work in related fields, but if you do plan on going to uni for that, you'll need better results in maths.

I just gave my GCSE's and I don't think I have done well... my school does not provide computer science in A level so I don't really know what to do? I guess it's better I just choose all three sciences in A levels and then learn coding as a side thing?

If you dont enjoy Maths, think again about Comp Sci.
You will need high grade Maths A level for a CS degree at most sensible Unis - and even a CS A level without string maths skills will be a struggle.
