How much do you have to be tsr-style 'into' a subject to study it at uni? watch

    I don't understand how people cannot see that physics is the most beautiful subject in the world.

    Sometimes I wish that I didn't love it as much as I do and study medicine- or something with a definite job at the end, but i'm drawn to it, it's weird.
    It's alright, but come on, the density of a copper wire? :yawn:
    Things like moments are good because they're maths...:tongue:

    A degree is still useful for a lot of things, even if it isn't specific to the career. Lots of employers just ask that you've done a degree in something, and careers like teaching require a degree though it doesn't always have to be in the subject you teach.

    Obviously, if you do a degree then go and do work you could have done anyway working in a bar or something, there isn't much point. But if you're aiming for a career that's a bit more academic, it's worthwhile and not a waste of time. Even if you don't use it right away, you still have the degree so it will never be wasted time.
