    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.

    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.

    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.
