    Want to do IT/Comp Sci. but maths may be a prob.

    I really enjoy doing IPT and Software Design and Development and for years, I've been working with IT and have done a considerable amount of programming. Hence, I'd like to study IT/CS related subjects at university.

    The only problem is mathematics. I've never particularly enjoyed maths and as such I am doing General Mathematics at the moment. Although I do well at General Maths, I am really worried about this because I fear that it will impact heaviliy and negatively on my future career, starting with Uni.

    Are there courses at Uni that I can do that don't require a comparitively high level of maths?

    I'd love to hear from current Uni students who might have been in my situation.

    Thanks!

    You don't need much maths for coding. If you are good at maths it indicates you could be good at coding. If you are good at coding, don't worry about maths - you have the bull by the horns.

    What I did just there is discrete maths (If All dogs are animals, it does not imply all animals are dogs). Discrete maths is fun and nothing like anything you did at school.
