Is Computer Science is HARD?

Computer Science is a hard discipline to learn. According to the research:

  1. Students who are weak in mathematics tend to be weak in programming and therefore weak in Computer Science.
  2. Students tend to be unprepared for the constructive nature of the Computer Science discipline.

Many students are not motivated or prepared to invest this amount of time. They are looking for an “easy” discipline that “allows them time for significant extra-curricular or social activities.” They don’t believe that they can have a fulfilling social life in college while putting in this amount of time to study. Fortunately, students who are motivated to invest the necessary time often find that they can also fit in active extra-curricular or social calendars and still be satisfied.

But I believe that just like any principle or study if you are motivated and devotee sufficient time to studying the discipline, then it is possible to learn Computer Science. The only difference is that Computer Science  students must utilize really good time management skills, and must plan for these extra-curricular and social activities. If you think of it, everything that evolves in technology right now is because of computer science. Yes, it is hard but with growth mindset and dedication, any student can pass this classes and be the future computer scientist.
