when i left uni there were lots of people saying not to do one type of comp course and to do something else. all i can say is do what you find interesting. my 1st in economics didn't prepare me for being a systems engineer so do what you want and worry about getting a job until you need to work, life's to short in my opinion and if you have an aptitude for something then do that.
all i know for sure is go to uni. or you will miss out on your chance and i left with loads of debt but it gets paid off eventually. just go and enjoy yourself
