If i am not here i am somewhere else

look at that sparky's doing the same as me. The 4B's at strath is for the honors but the masters is AAAA or AABBB. This gives you full accredition with the BSA and full exception from exams where honors only gives you partial exception

Exactely. And the fact the Masters gives you industrial experience and a much greater knowledge of the business and law side of things.

The only thing bad about Computer Science is that the maths clases in 1st and 2nd year, that will probably be hell! Well I would imagine it would be pretty tricky! smile.gif

Programming...a challange shall we say? tongue.gif

If you do the Advanced Higher you won't find the maths too bad. (I do Physics, but many of the maths classes are the same as CS).

I think you'll just need to do Maths 1B and 2B which are described here:

http://www.maths.strath.ac.uk/ungrad/science/first.html

along with an introductory stats class (based around MS Excel!).

The worst thing about 1st year maths is the huge classes (300+ people).

I think all doctors should be forced to undergo a psychological anaylsis.

They're in a position to do a lot of harm. It would stop 'rogue' doctors being able to do horrific things to patients. We all watch the news and have heard about incidents. Serial killer doctors.

But also - A lot of people would find it difficult to cope with the stress.

that's just daft you could say that about anything and get away with it by taking the moral high ground on protecting us from them. You can't force people into analysis like that it moust be against human rights and at the very least would discourage people to join the medicine and caring sector which would be very dangerous to the future of the country

Well for Medicine there are almost always interviews and part of it is to judge the sort of person. Some universities actually use pyschometry testing for Medicine though its always voluntary for those unis involved.

At the end of the day we are put through loads of checks such as background and police checks which they didnt used to before the incidents with doctors.

I disagree, Dave.

Everything is against the european bill of human rights!

However, you do have a point about it putting people off. But it is not in the interest of the country to have doctors who are too weak to do the job correctly. It would put the lives of patients at risk.

Martin. You seem to be rather controversial and I fear that this discussion may become a huge arguement. I do hope you two will stop this conversational now. If you wish to continue it then I refer you to the off topic thread.
