    Well those people saying "coldplay didn't study anything", I'm quite sure they met when at UCL when staying in Ramsay hall. Well that's what I've heard from a few people, rumours do spread around like wildfire here but I doubt anyone cares enough to make that one up.

    Coldplay, as a single entity. They all stayed in the same room. And travelled around together, all linking arms. always.

    What do you do, if Maths with Astronomy seems like an easy degree? Theoretical Quantum Physics?

    Agreed more or less about the rest of them tho. You can't do nothing and get a degree, but Anthropology or Classics are definitely among easier options.

    Classics and Anthropology are easy? Classics is easy? So I guess languages, history, philosophy, English literature and linguistics are easy? Christ. The only sense in which "Classics and Anthropology" are easy is the same as the sense in which "only Chemistry and Physics are hard and everything else is mickey mouse" which I guess shouldn't surprise me coming from a pharmacologist but whatever.

    And it would very much surprise me if they did Music degrees at a university with no Music department.

    Sorry, didn't mean to wind you up. They aren't easy as such, especially not at a good uni like UCL. But they are easier in the sense that workload is less structured and all of them require less contact hours than for example Chemsitry- if any Coldplay member did something like Chem, they only instrument they would have had time to use would be a lab spectrometer.
