Lol'd, this is real snobbery OP ^



depends, what are your other subjects, and what degree do you want to do?



yeah that's crap as well, writing essays isn't difficult
i'm going to do history, geography, gov + politics and maths. either dropping maths or gov + politics, and i'll be looking to do non-stem degree because stem is not for me.

and writing essays are so difficult to stem students (atleast in my school), they struggle on how to start it.

STEM is not everything. Try doing an essay based subject and then get back to me, okay?

STEM is not everything. We all like different things and every degree is valuable regardless of what it is.

Propaganda, simply wrong.

You'd see what I meant if you attempted some Math proofs.

STEM snobbery is bad, but so is your non-STEM snobbery. Don't diss another subject just because you're bad at it, just like you wouldn't like someone else to diss your non-STEM subject.

Yeah, fair enough. I'm as STEM as it gets but I dislike it when people go all elitist about them. The arts and humanities are friggin' awesome.

I am familiar with this STEM snobbery a lot. STEM students only display their subjects as better as they usually have no creative talent or essay skills, and are only able to learn facts given in front of them (soz for being truthful lmao).

The people who like STEM subjects and arty based subjects never seem to bash non-science lessons however, and agree that both are needed for the world to revolve.

No I only took history to A Level, I was so interested by the subject but I was so bad with exam technique that I started to hate it towards the end because I couldn't get decent grades 😞

Im sorry but I just cant treat PE at A-Level as the same as say Physics or Further Maths, and neither will most universities if not all.

I don't think you should take the snobbery of your STEM-studying friends so seriously.

They probably feel that since science helps us have a better understand of reality then spending time thinking about things which aren't real is probably less valuable.

At University, I know that some of my STEM-studying friends are jealous of arts and humanities students who have at most one lecture a day. They are able to get by by skimming their reading list and so end up with a lot of free time in comparison to the long days of people who study different subjects.

true. my friend who's a facilitating subject freak sent me this when i told them i want to do Gov and politics. Attachment 527807

lol i didnt know people can be so worked up on what others take.
You're so lucky that you can do A Level Gov&Pol, I wish I could but my school doesn't offer it It would fit so well with my other options as well.
