I am predicted four A*s and am applying soon, I want to do STEM.

I believe Computer Science is the most underrated degree

I was considering applying for Medicine and I have work experience there but after doing a lot of research I think it looks overrated so not sure if I will apply, from my experience with family members in hospital/talking to doctors etc. the NHS can be a very cliquey bullying environment. As it is the most prestigious degree and most people want to do it or are jealous of medical students it is possibly the most overrated (IMHO)

This thread is subjective before the usual trolls come on but give your reasons why you think certain subjects are over/underrated

Underrated, probably geography since it encompasses so much from other subjects like history and religious studies.

Underrated: Economics. If you don't agree, you're an idiot. Economics is the master race and anything else is not worth studying.

STEM subjects are not underrated. They're the George Clooney of academia.

This. At university, foreign language courses don't just involve learning the language. You also learn the history, politics, literature etc of your chosen country. Also, the compulsory year abroad is something which definitely stands out to employers.

I disagree with foreign languages tbf, it used to be a USP to speak a 2nd language but in this globalised world, its not really that big of a deal anymore
