Help year 10 deciding if to do this subject

Hey, im in year 10 and currently deciding what i want to do in university and the subjects i want to do for next year. I've taken interest in computer science and am unsure if i should do software design and development. Is there assumed knowledge going into this subject? Do you have to know a lot of coding before going into this subject.

Hey firstly there is no assumed knowledge for Software Design and Development so its great even if you have no coding experience. The whole point of the course is to teach you how to code, not only on a computer but by hand too. Obviously your experience will vary depending on your teacher but for me, my teacher taught us how to code quite effectively.

I see your interested in Computer Science, if that's the case you should definitely take SDD because it helps a lot with first year uni Comp sci. A lot of our exercises for programming are literally past HSC questions made harder :)

Definitely try SDD!
