    So I applied to a university with my first choice being BSc (Biological Science) and my second BMus (classical music). Assuming I get accepted into both courses, which should I take?

    My parents say music, everyone else says science and I'm confused. I am very passionate about both fields, but one week I love the one more than the other, and the next vice versa.

    If I do go for music I would take it along with media studies and dramatic arts..

    I should probably mention that the university in question has the best science department in the country. The music department, on the other hand, isn't one of the best.

    Any thoughts on which would be better?

    if it's a science degree from oxbridge/ imperial, it definitely gives you better employability than music

    which do you want to do?

    I'll be studying in South Africa.. and certain factors would count against me for employment in any industry involving science here in South Africa. Music might just give me an opportunity to start a music school or open up a business as a music consultant..?

    I don't know what I want to do. Right now I'm leaning more towards music (but that might just be because I'm a little lazy from a long holiday :P)

    Yesterday a african talked to me about his background. He's now about 45 sth. He felt regretful that he chose science, physics, engineering as his degrees because he focused on music in his uni life. He now worked in the UK, teaching students but he still regretted that he didnt choose music in the university.
