CS is for a certain type of thinker. You can be smart, driven and focused and simply not be that type of thinker. My husband is all of those things but he tried CS and it didn't pan out for him. He wound up becoming a religious studies major, and then learning several languages. I struggle with just the one. But he'll never do CS. I'll never speak Mixtec.

I'm not saying that's necessarily your situation. I don't know enough about you. It could be that your learning style doesn't mesh with their teaching style.

Can I ask if you went in knowing any CS or was it all new to you?

For my part, I never want to uni. I was at microsoft at 18 but I also know I didn't have a lot of the ancillary skills necessary to do well in that type of academic environment, like just the rigor and the propensity for good study habits.

The reason I bring that up is it might be that you can code, but uni can't teach you.

For my part, knowing only what I know about you from this post, I would have a plan B in mind, and hopefully a minor in something really solid, but I wouldn't switch majors just yet.

I don't know if they have tutors for CS stuff but if they do, maybe see about getting one.
