Im still young and very ambitious; I have taken the decision in my life that I want to study computer science and maths. Im currently finishing off BTEC IT expecting to receive D*D*D and an A in A Level maths and possibly an A in AS further maths. Im considering in taking a degree in computer science, except that after finishing the degree (thinking of the future now) I want to do a career in CPU architectural design or become a quantitative analyst etc however these are obviously jobs that need you to have extensive past experience. But getting to where you want is not always the answer in life. I just want to hear from people with real world experience and explain how they climbed the pole.
