What do people generally consider as MM subjects? Any particular one that you want to talk about? I don't want to do a subject that is considered to be MM coz it'd be a waste of time.

David Beckham Studies! :rolleyes: - I've been reliably informed that it does exist! (Or I'm extremely gullible!)

People making micky mouse subjects isn't really productive to be honest. How can you know what is mickey mouse unless you have studied it yourself?

I would have to agree. To me something like Philosophy is a load of intellectual bs which isn't any different from David Beckham studies. But then again I know nothing about Philosophy so I couldn't possibly presume to be judge and jury

I'm sure most people think what I do is fixed cars and washing machines all day :cool:

How about you do what you're interested in, even if it is a mickey mouse subject? You have to put up with it for three years, no point in doing english/history/maths if you don't enjoy it...

Philosophy is the best subject i have ever done... and is by far the most challenging of all, including I.T, Business, and History. So dont assume just because u dont know anything about it, that there is nothing to learn!

It is definetly not a mickey mouse subject, i have three folders full of work for it and three text books.

ive finished ranting now

COULDN'T AGREE MORE... totally with you on that. i was determined to do something like history at oxbridge, just because i felt it was the right thing to do, and what was expected of me as a straight A student etc... but thats a stupid reason to chose your course. i have now found a really interesting media course at a former poly... and am really excited about going. reading round and stuff will be much easier and i will hopefully do far more than just pass - i will actually gain a lot from it as i will be enthusiastic about what i am studying.

Very simple - there IS NOT any mickymouse subject, each has their ownmerits etc. Please search too im sick of these threads now. I appreciate newbies brininging them up but i've been here nearly a year and ive heard it so many times.

I think each degree whatever the subject has its own good and bad points. There are things like a degree in logic that I don't understand though...

I always assumed logic is somthing that cannot be taught as such, you can be taught how to apply it, i.e maths, but you can't be taught logic as such. I think you're born with it.

You can be taught methods but thats somthing different as somebody else has done the logic.

A MM degree in my opinion is a degree that most people would find fun. It won't help you get a job, it's easy and it causes arguments between supporters of the subject and non-supporters.

There is no such thing as a "mickey mouse" subject, especially at A level, that's ridiculous. Some people may find a particular subject easier than others, but it doesn't necessarily mean that everyone finds it easy.

I would suggest sticking to subjects that you're good at. At the end of the day, it's the grade that counts.

I would contend that Maths/Sciences have more respect that others.

Although there are no mickey mouse courses at A-level, there are certianly courses that are perceived to be so. I was always good at Maths and the Sciences but opted to take subjects I found interesting at the time (inc Media) now I'm looking to take Economics at a 'good' uni, I'm seeing alot of them e.g. oxbridge/LSE are quite against applicants taking these subjects. Fortunately for me, I don't want to be going to oxbridge anyway and am wanting to leave london so LSE is not an option anyway and I should be able to get an offer for my unis provided I get the grades as I took Maths anyway.
