People who say stuff like 'Any A-level that's not STEM isn't worth doing', do you even know what the term means? The T and E are for Technology and Engineering; Technology A-levels are not very respected when applying for science university courses, I've seen they're just add-ons to the more 'academic' subjects. The Engineering A-level is an applied course only offered by Edexcel, which again is not respected. You cannot apply STEM to A-level discussions; it's just bounded about by people who are trying to look in the know.
What exactly is a technology degree? I can only imagine Design & Technology degrees, which are not 'up there' with science degrees. Engineering is a great degree, but not great as an A-level subject. Should one take A-Level Resistant Materials Technology and Applied Engineering A-levels instead of English Literature and Geography? Omg choose the STEM option instead of the respected humanities subjects, because STEM.
At least understand the terms you're using before slating other people's humanities subjects. I study Maths at uni before I'm accused of not being smart enough to study science.
Science > Maths (unless from Cambridge)
I'm not too keen on how people look down on non-STEM degrees in the first place.
STEM does not literally mean Science, Technology and Engineering etc. Sure, the acronym translates to it but it is a term used to classify areas / fields that generally lead into those fields or are related in some way. Technology does not mean DT, it means subjects such as maths and physics that lead to other fields where you can develop technologies etc., in a broad sense.
