Surely an obvious troll. Vidachick always posts saying how she's applying to Uni even though she dosses about and makes no effort, getting poor grades.

What have they contributed to, over let's say, a heart surgeon who practices medicine or a chemist who creates the drugs?
You wouldn't know whether those drugs were safe for use or not if it wasn't for the journalists on that list.

I think they should tbh as that way the goverment could afford to give us all free tuition fees. Why should you be allowed to go to uni with EEE at A-level? It's absolutely ridiculous IMO.
Says the girl who skived school to go to Greggs, spent her EMA on getting drunk with her boyfriend, and STILL expected preferential treatment?
Feeling a bit rubbish about the two justified rejections?

I concur. Which is more important, harnessing energy released from nuclear fission as we bombard our Uranium 235 with neutrons, or learning how to analyse Shakespeare's crappy plays.
On the other hand, an English degree would enhance your understanding of irony, and enable you to argue your point about how English is pointless in a much more pointed way. It's a toughie.

Scientific evidence takes precedance over media trash.

I think everyone should have the chance to go to uni if that's what they want to do - regardless of their grades.

Going to university shouldn't only be an opportunity for the 'elite'.
Why not though, it is supposed to be a symbol of a higher level of education, which can be described using the word elite. Why should underachievers be allowed to spend taxpayers money having a three year jolly?

i suffered with Glandular Fever too last year, well done on getting back on track though
I had the same! Right before my exams too, I scraped three fairly decent C's thankfully but I knew I could of done far better, some of my modules I got E's and U's in! But does that mean jack to me? No.

Like the rest said - "3rd" year of college, lack of qualifications on your profile (fear of us using it against you perhaps?) and your current uni responses but haha, not looking good is it?

Don't judge people. Becuase it might just be you thats in that position at some point.

Can an English degree holder easily go through a transition to study science, for example, chemistry? Definitely not. But a chemist can easily learn how to argue coherently.

Not everyone can be a scientist, you fool. Besides, the world would be a very dull place to live if everyone had your attitude.

Exactly. So those of you whom are too stupid to do science, you may partake in your poncy English courses.

This thread will become all the more hilarious and ironic when Vidachick gets rejected by Bristol.

Laith, shut up. It doesn't matter what degree you do as long as you're passionate about it. Any degree can get you most jobs.

Why not? It's not like all English students are rubbish at sciences by default, you know...
