    Wow, they're all so up themselves!

    "I'm so successful" etc.

    Surely if you're so successful running your own business you don't need a £250,000 investment to branch out someone else's?

    "Oooh man, Sophie-"
    "No, I'm not man. I'm Lord Sugar"

    The future of UK business lies in the hands of good people (I hope).

    Not some sad arrogant narcissists who apply for the Apprentice and waste their time trying to jump through his hoops for money.

    Real entrepreneurs will be making money themselves and making a success.

    I wanted to apply to Young Apprentice too but they are awful.

    I know at heart. It's just that a few hours of revision today plus a mock English lit exam after school has turned me into a grumpy person today...

    The people on Young Apprentice are just a little better than the plebs on the normal apprentice. :facepalm: I don't think you should waste your time with that BS.

    Yeah, haha English Lit

    Which is more likely, A* in Lit or Biology? I've decided to choose between them :ahee:

    Yeah, a bit better it'd be nice to go on there though

    Is it bad that for me the star in Biology is more likely when I can only miss one mark for it? :sexface:

    I don't watch the Apprentice since studying that Ed guy from a few years ago for English Lang :unimpressed:

    I'd prefer the A* in Biology but thats just me. Biology is more respected than English Lit right? Am I right?:confused:

    Yeah, the Young Apprentice was bearable.

    Ugh, I can't wait until study leave. I genuinely enjoy revising late at night, everyone's in bed and there's no distractions but I can't do that when I have to be up at 6.30 in the morning

    I'd say English literature is more respected than biology :s

    Afterall, you don't always need a level biology in order to get onto a biology degree - whereas with English lit, you do (most of the time, anyway).

    Well not always, every university's different. But when it comes to applying to a biology-based degree it's always: chemistry > biology.

    Of course, biology is still an important subject!

    I just feel English shows you can analyse text and put meaning into things and intricately write powerful responses to things whereas biology shows you can kind of, sort of do a science. But that's only my opinion.

    I'd like to fact check this (I won't but I'd like to).

    Because they're GCSEs, respect is entirely irrelevant :u:

    That's true, I suppose I was getting off track

    I distinctly remember whilst degree browsing around that biology isn't really needed. I'll have a look around and share what I find, just out of curiosity of course

    Looking at this, I'm thinking that according to universities, English is more valuable to study English than biology is to study biology but maybe this is because English literature doesn't have any 'sister subjects' as chemistry is to biology. Biology is a part of a much wider spectrum that is science whereas English is a wide spectrum in itself?

    I don't know. This is what happens when I try to be deep when I'm tired.

    There's likely more preference for English in the 'Arts' subjects whilst people will prefer Biology for the 'Science' faculty. Given your likely uni subject choices, I'd go with Bio.
