    That was me talking chemistry c*** haha, I forget sometimes the average person is woefully under educated about science and chemistry in particular.

    I suppose the advantage of learning about all the different departments in your course is at least that you are educated and prepared enough to be able to managed effectively in all business environments which in turn will enhance your career prospects to a potential employer, so at least from my own perspective, I wouldn't consider that wasted...

    However, I still fail to see what possible use I could put the Arrhenius equation to in the lab, considering most complex calculations in science are done by computers nowadays anyway
    hha id noticed lol. i am certainly one of them people haha.
    well thats the idea especially as im not sure in what field i want to become a manager in so i guess this broadens my horizon in terms of that.
    well prehaps the computer breaks and u need to do something with that equation? i cant really answer this properly as i have no idea what it is hahaah

    Most definitely. I break into a cold sweat when I think about actually qualifying as a doctor.. I'm not even halfway through my degree and I don't feel I can cram any more info in, let alone actually recall it when it matters.

    this is so relevant to my life only a doctor has far more importance then a manager in terms of remembering things!
    i can read a paragraph of my text book and then thing "what the f did i just read"

    Some of the module content is too academic to be applicable to industry. I am a firm believer if you learn different topics you remember it, if you remember topics you forget it.
