      Yo man I am thinking of doing a degree of computer science. Can you please give me a run down of what I should expect, the difficulty of the course etc

      Hi! Surely but keep in mind I did my degree in Germany so the curriculum in your country is likely to be different.
      At first we were taught "basics" of programming, using Java, and general things like boolean logic, simple logic using gates, multiplexers and flip-flops. In parallel we were taught math (analysis, linear algebra) which was tougher than cs.
      Second year was further math and more cs relying on the math you learned in the first year. This includes computational complexity and algorithms - stuff like "how fast is your algorithm asymptotically" and stuff like Turing machines.
      If you manage to get past these topics, it was up to me what to choose further but these are the basics in Germany.

      Also how difficult is the maths , I have am doing the second highest level at the moment

      I don't know what equals to second highest level but I will try to explain my view on this:
      In school you had to *calculate*. You knew what you had to do and deal with concrete numbers.
      Math at university in Germany is more like proving mathematical equations which means you have to have a very good understanding on what the equation means so you can fiddle with it or to use other equations to show/prove another equation is true.
      This is a totally different approach and you need some to get used to this (at least in my case ;)).

      Ok thanks, I am asking because I am not sure if I should venture in a degree of computer science (not saying my maths is bad but I am not the best) or like a general IT degree.
