    why physics - would maths not be equally hard?

    sure with law you've got to remember lots - but if you just "dont-get" the maths - your a bit screwed! :rolleyes:

    Sorry, was a bit slow getting the Poll up as well (didn't realise I'd posted first... )

    I've tried to get most courses in on only 10 options (as it's not allowed to post more) and I've really done my best to try to get the categories somewhat right.

    Feel free to tick a few different courses if you want.

    Sorry
    I only had 10 options and I'm no super-expert on different subjects...

    I voted law, although I know it's medicine. Can't see how medicine is associated with Vet Sci though. Law is hardly than the latter, though probably not the former.

    If the truth be told it's probably mathematics. I know from personal experience that law is piss easy.

    Philosophy is the deepest of all subjects, but learning mathematics is the hardest.

    Shouldn't Computer Science come under Mathematical Sciecnces?

    Depends what you're bad at. I know plenty of arts students who are terrified of anything mathematical and would fail utterly a maths degree, likewise I know plenty of maths/science students who have real difficulty with essay writing, despite the ease with which they can manipulate equations.

    Some subjects - medicine, in particular - are harder in the sense that they demand more learning and hard work, but a lot of it is rote learning, and I'm not sure that they are necessarily as intellectually demanding as some other subjects.

    But I'll say Maths. Just because if you can't do it, you probably can't do it. Even the most illiterate maths students could probably scrape a pass on a media studies degree, whilst most media studies students probably wouldn't have a chance on a maths degree.

    does that not make Engineering (Electronic) harder than maths, as thats not only super hard maths but much much more?

    i would say overall that the medics, vets and dentists have to put in the most work over their degree course what with 9-5's and a 5 or 6 year course. However, I think that some science types are overly snobby towards art students. Yes we have less hours timetables but we have more work to do outside. For instance one of my mates was a second year medic and I would have rather had her time table (for this year anyway i know the next clinical few years are nasty) and she always seemed to have weeks off or various afternoons off and very little work to actually do outside of the lecture theatre and it only seemed to be medics that had free time at weekends when everyone else was busy trying to write esays. Although when you look at the whole picture i don't think other subjects can compete with the medics etc when you look at the whole time spent on their degree.

    I think maths was a piece of cake actually. Talking from experience, of course.
