Re: Its the Will of the People!!

Going slightly OT could the numbers of media studies/arts students reflect the numbers of places available

No it's simple economics.

Any indoor job with no heavy lifting now requires a degree.

The employer doesn't care what degree you have - just the grade.

Why work hard at school and risk not getting the required 17 straight As in whatever A Levels are called today.

Then put in 9-5 lectures and labs for a science degree when you can do history of Art, get in with a couple of Cs, pay the same fees and get the same office job

Actually you get a better job, with your nice shiny management studies degree you get to be the boss of those specialists that did physics.
