    Nice one.

    Do you think I could get into medical school by saying "I just want to be drunk for 5 years"?
    probably, if you applied to the corruption school of medicine in india

    the uni i go to is quite easy i just go to get pissed i can easily get 40% in first year
    The amount of effort that gets you 40% in first year will not be enough for you to pass second year. Not to mention that it'll be even harder on account of not knowing most of the basic stuff from first year that you then have to try and build on.

    It's just sad that you're not getting what you are supposed to out of it.

    If you want a job that requires academia you should love academia.
    If you want a job that requires a 'broadening your mind' then you are missing the point by not doing so.
    If you want a job that your degree will not be useful for then you shouldn't feel you need a degree.

    The last point is particularly tragic - the government have engineered it so that people who have no need of a degree, and don't want one, have to waste three years of their lives. University life is fantastic, but the point of widening access to higher education to those who don't directly need it is to create a nation of reflective, educated people. It's a huge privilege, and I support funding for people who don't need a degree, provided they want to do one. Otherwise it's a waste of time and money on both sides.

    I want a job that requires academia but I don't love it.

    only reason I want the job is because the money is attractive thus allowing me to do the things i really want.

    Interesting, I was actually thinking that might be the case.

    Well if you want to work hard at something you don't enjoy, in order to get a good job, that's fair enough, and good luck to you. I hope you come to enjoy academia, simply because it's an amazing thing to be doing, and you could have a job you enjoy as well as a good salary, but that's your business.

    I the OP wasn't a massive troll I would still apply my post to people like him, because there is a difference between drinking and working hard and drinking and failing (I drink plenty, and enjoy it), but I guess you'll always have some people who take advantage of the funding opportunities we get. The majority of students have fun and work hard.
    I don't think ive ever enjoyed education unless you count languages and PE, as for the OP I'm sure he is not silly enough to literally do nothing at uni

    If you are right about the OP then this is a non-thread.

    What subject do you do? Do you not find it remotely interesting? Both my parents are teachers, so my perspective is atypical.

    Economics interesting in comparison to other subjects but enjoyable? not in the slightest.
