    Business Studies seems to be pretty straight-forward and easy. It doesn't really seem on par with the intensity of other humanities courses.

    Teacher: The man is selfish and self-obsessed and only looks out for himself. The coat is a metaphor for a shield of his dark soul.

    As someone who does Drama & Theatre Studies, I personally find it harder than, for example, English Literature because of the sheer amount of work (and stress) it involves, but that's just my opinion.

    THIS.
    Except then English is very hard to get an A in, thanks to a-hole examiners.

    No no, you have it all wrong.

    Clearly the coat represents the burdens he carries with him every day. With each rain drop adding to its weight, he needs to discard it in order to be free.

    True, unless you are studying someone like Angela Carter, where every rock is a author intended metaphor for something.

    That's what makes it so fun though! I loved coming up with my own interpretations, no matter how obscure

    It actually annoys me because i'm more historical and want to know what they actually mean a lot of the time. Then these Lit professors and students invent the most bs interpretations based on one bit of text (ever heard of sample size...), It's frustrating.

    The coat is a symbol for protection; he wished he used some with his mother last night. Thought i'd drop some psychoanalysis (anyone noticed that before) in.

    You're all so critical of applied science and business studies etc..but I completely disagree. Yes they may be more accessible than courses like maths or history but they're still challenging for people who choose to take them and still worth the 2 years of hard work and revision a person has to partake in to achieve a decent grade.
