Are you saying that Accounts is somewhat like a Mini and Economics is more like the Rolls Royce?

I don't know anyone who would recommend D&T over English literature, at A level

Agreed and in my experience, the best STEM students were always humble and respectful, as opposed to giving the bratty, "enjoy your job in Starbucks" speech.

Chemistry is just applied Physics which in turn is a way to describe our universe using maths.

pls Maths is pretty useless if it's not applied to something. No doubt Maths is essential.. but maths in itself is pointless.

The ignorance is blinding me!

My eyes!


An example.

If no had come up with mathematical technique of calculus then so much of our understanding of physics would be unobtainable.

that's because they're genuinely intelligent, open-minded people that can appreciate all branches of academia.

lol @ insecure STEM students that can't write for ****.

People who say stuff like 'Any A-level that's not STEM isn't worth doing', do you even know what the term means? The T and E are for Technology and Engineering; Technology A-levels are not very respected when applying for science university courses, I've seen they're just add-ons to the more 'academic' subjects. The Engineering A-level is an applied course only offered by Edexcel, which again is not respected. You cannot apply STEM to A-level discussions; it's just bounded about by people who are trying to look in the know.

What exactly is a technology degree? I can only imagine Design & Technology degrees, which are not 'up there' with science degrees. Engineering is a great degree, but not great as an A-level subject. Should one take A-Level Resistant Materials Technology and Applied Engineering A-levels instead of English Literature and Geography? Omg choose the STEM option instead of the respected humanities subjects, because STEM.

At least understand the terms you're using before slating other people's humanities subjects. I study Maths at uni before I'm accused of not being smart enough to study science.
Find something else to be pissed off at. if this is the height of your problems, I envy you greatly...
