Re: STEM

But we just had a 25% increase in STEM students - simply by reclassifying "exercise science" and "domestic science" as STEM.

Shhh! Next thing we know they'll be claiming that social sciences and political science are STEM. Then they could say that PPE counts as a political science, and then all the utter wankers with PPE degrees will be STEM graduates.

Apparently there's 88 PPE undergraduate courses starting this year. If there's 40 people on each, that's another 3,500 dossers becoming STEM graduates, increasing the total by 4%.
