    No, I don't think I'd have the patience. I do History and Politics, me :awesome:

    I have no idea. I think the vague plan was for sometime after Easter but before the exams, obviously that ain't happening.

    I don't know, it's besides the point though. I don't do Law and I doubt I will when I go to university. I'm going to do me the most pointless degree... (okay, the second most pointless after English Lit.) History :hat:

    Blates.

    There are times when I remember how much I do like Law, there just seem to be an annoying amount of times when it's tedious and too much effort.

    I think you should do what you enjoy.

    You're gonna spend a lot of money. Might as well make the most of it!

    You'd be surprised. It's one of those degrees that seems to be able to get you in to quite a lot of jobs, apart from the obvious ones like historian, teaching etc. Media jobs, various research/information studies jobs and so on, as well as academic research.

    Sadly not true. Whilst experience is the key criterion that'll make or break a job application, a degree can provide a massive instant filter to a stack of applications. For example, many jobs I've applied for recently have said they don't need a degree, but if the recruiter gets 50 applications, 20 of which have degrees, they can often just discount the remaining 30. This is especially true in some sectors, like science.

    I probably didn't phrase that too well :hmmmm: but was working on the assumption that Laertes was getting a degree...not saying he shouldn't get one

    Essentially what I meant was that a degree is only the basic starting place :sigh: you have to have one and getting a history degree isn't any worse than getting another degree because of this reason:

    I should be quiet at this time of night I try to say everything with a sentence and usually it's not the right sentence...even with smileys

    I'm alright ta. Muddling along. Hoping for a first again, though you wouldn't guess it from my workload. How are you? What grade are you aiming for?
    Sounds about like my life at the moment, although I'm really looking forward to going interrailing with my girlfriend. <3

    I'm aiming for a first, definitely. I averaged something like an 86 first semester, and I'm hoping for at least at 80 average this semester; I'll be very disappointed with anything less. Of course, I could still just not take my physics exam, and still pass into third year; for some reason I took 20 extra credits over the course of this year. ;.;
