How to get into the tech industry?

Im about to go in y12 and im taking bio, psych and computer science. I still don’t know if I want to go into tech for sure however im leaning towards it. Im just worried that I may not be able to get into the industry/ become overlooked because im not taking maths. If I go into tech I’ll probably specialise in cyber security but I want to know if I have a chance since im not that great at computing and also what I can do to improve my skill set.

No one one in tech can do maths. They employ special mathsy people to do the mathsy stuff and they are locked in a special room for their own protection! 😂😂

Seriously though, it is time to start acquiring the skills you require. Why not apply for some work experience if you can.

Good luck!
