I got admitted into University a few weeks back, unfortunately Universities in my country dose not allow students to take CSE unless they have maths and physics in their A levels even though I had computer science in my A levels and did a lot better than my friends who had maths and physics. I asked them if there was any way I could change my major and they said no. So unfortunately i have to study management information system now and that's the closest subject i could find related to computers the i was allowed. I envied all the students I met there since all of them were studying computer science and they didn't even know how to code . These are the very students who change their major from CSE to BBA . The education system in my country is fucked up ;-; . But that isn't going to stop me from coding right now I started learning java and after I'm done with that i plan on starting to learn lua. Anyways I'm planning on giving another A levels on maths which I'm really bad at lol. Also I don't really know much about management information system i just went with it because all the other BBA majors seemed boring to me and I was too bummed out to research on the subject.Anyways wanted to ask if it is possible to get a job as a developer if you're self taught in South Asian countries?

    They do this because computer -science- is a very different beast, it has a lot of maths, especially discrete and abstract maths. It's very different from Information Systems or Information Technology or whatever.

    Keep at it though, if you have the required skills and a degree, it shows that you can work in the desired environment and you'll probably be able to get the kind of job you want.

    @RememberMe but wouldn't it have been better if they allowed us to enroll into a maths course or something? Which at least gave us a chance to get into the subject since the first year we don't really focus on our majors and just study some general subjects like english and maths

    @IshYume well fair point, actually, but
    Assuming your country is like mine in the sense that there's a lot of competition for admission into good courses, I can totally see why they'd prefer a candidate who already has a maths background. It's a smaller risk.

    @RememberMe our country dose seem similar lol well now i have to work hard to get into CSE since I'll have to give another a level and study at University at the same time, thanks a lot for the insight
