Avoid Media Studies...

Another dose of common sense hits the UK education world...

Pupils are being advised to avoid taking certain A-level subjects if they want to get places at top universities.

Cambridge University and the London School of Economics (LSE) say traditional subjects offer the best preparation for study at degree level.

Subjects on their "don't do these..." list include Theatre Studies, Sports Studies, Media Studies, Business Studies , Communication Studies, Leisure Studies, Film Studies, Performance Studies...

Well, you get the drift.

On the other hand, subjects they specifically recommend include Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry...

Further surprises to follow no doubt.
