Hi all, I just wanted to share a personal victory. People who know me on here will know I have a personal vendetta going on against the scientists at my school who constantly brainwash our future medics that they must have three sciences and maths, blablabla. One of my top students phoned up UCL, who told him that they would much rather he dropped physics and did a facilitating subject instead, one that showed empathy and an open mind. So he's taking French! This is the second university (after Birmingham) which I know of that actively looks for something else that 3x sciences and maths in future doctors. I'm now learning the basics of trumpet playing so I can go and play outside the science staffroom!
