    I'll keep this simple.

    I have applied for ChemEng and been given places at reasonably good universities (Edinburgh, Manchester, Bath, Nottingham, Birmingham), which I was really pleased about. But now I'm wondering if the course is right for me and If I should apply for Physics with Philosophy degree, as I really enjoy Philosophy.

    (Admittedly it is late in the day to change but it's not impossible)

    Pro's ChemEng

    -Really solid pay (like ridiculous amounts)
    -Very well respected
    -Very easy to get a job after.

    Pro's Phis/Phil

    -Think I enjoy philosophy and physics more.
    -May get better degree as more passionate

    So, What sort of jobs are you likely to get from a physics (with a bit of philosophy)? And most importantly, some opinions about the choice as a whole; which option would YOU chose?

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
