Having second thoughts Watch
As long as I can remember I was always certain that I am going to study physics. SImply because I'm good in it, it doesn't require too much revision and I find it interesting. I just felt comfortable with it, and obviously it's just really interesting and I just really want to know how the world functions ( standard PS sentence but true.
The thing is that I also have a passion for Politics, Sociology, social anthropology and ethics. I am really enjoying these topics in school, I get very passionate in discussions and it turns out that I tend to have the right ideas .
The question is now, should I stick with the familiar or dare trying out something new? Because this thought is really tempting and when I think about it I'm quite certain that I'd enjoy the social siences.
But I do have problems with writing and expressing my thoughts on paper, on the other hand I am really good with finding arguments and talking
I wish I could just do both but I don't want to regret my decision later an think that I have missed out on something.
I have two options now, I either stick to my application and hope that I get into Edinburgh and then just try the subjects out or I withdraw my application and apply again next year ( I wanted to do a gap year anyway)
I would be very grateful for any advice
And there are always student societies and clubs. It's much easier to get involved with the political/debate side of things as a hobby alongside your main course of study than it is to study politics and still keep up with learning about physics.. Just my thoughts on the matter.
But it's not the debating I am interested in, I really like learning everything about politics, society and philosophy.
It's just that I enjoy it so much recently because it's getting intelectually more challenging and the topics are just amazing, and my teacher is brilliant!
I it actually possible to just do two degrees if I end up enjoying both?
About the gap year, I was thinking of only applying to scottish unis as I wouldn't be paying any fees as an EU- student
