Question by sam: In university requirements, is geography considered a ‘science’, or is it only physics, biology, chemistry?
I know that biology, chemistry and physics are typical sciences, but i was wondering if geography was considered as a science?
In terms of university requirements/applications..? (in the UK)

For example some courses i am looking at, state the requirements of English and a science..and physics was the only science i took at GCSE level, and i dropped it after that.

oh yeah..social studies. i don’t know why i didn’t think of that..cos i actually know it aha :| there was just something in the back of my mind thinking that geography might be classed as a science..like an earth science.

oh well..thanks anyway. [:

Geography is considered as a social study, I believe.
Also, chemistry, biology, and physics are lab sciences, unlike psychology, sociology, and physical science.

Question by Ken: Should I take AP Chemistry or Physics honors? Read details?
So sophomore year i took honors chem and it was ok, I had a B through out the entire year. Since we only have 3 main science classes that we HAVE to take (bio, chem, and physics) but we have to have 4 years of science. Does that make sense??? so should I take ap Chem my junior year? Then just take physics senior year? Thanks!!!

Answer by Tanner
Yes you should. The AP class is very helpful, if you do well on the test you can get college credits and not have to take the class in college.

Question by logemon1: Should I take chemistry or physics for Computer Science major?
I am a college student and I have the option of taking either a 3-course chemistry series or a 3-course physics series. I am not sure which one I should take. What are the advantages in the field with both of them? What benefits will I gain from each one as it pertains to my Computer Science career? Thanks!

Take the physics. It has more immediate application to semiconductor theory….

Question by mobeks: got into UCLA neuroscience and Berkeley College of Chemistry. Please help me pick.?
This is for undergraduate programs at those colleges.

UCLA pros: I am strongly passionate about neuroscience, so this seems nearly perfect
con: Very far from where I live, (8 hours at least!)

Berkeley pros: It has greater, however slight, prestige.
It has the number 1 (or really really close) chemistry program in the world
It is fairly close, which means i can drive home and see my family every(other) weekend

Please explain why I should pick your suggestion. If you pick Berkeley, do you think that going there will allow me a better career in neuroscience(because I’m assuming I’ll be pretty well equipped chemistry or chemical biology-wise)
1 hour ago – 4 days left to answer.
Additional Details
Not going to Berkeley seems like a waste, especially because of how hard it is to get in there and get acquainted with such a prestigious environment(would provide me contacts, etc. which would be great for future careers)
I plan to go to medical school

Best answer:

Answer by Catarina
You are passionate about neuroscience, so you are more likely to be an outstanding star of the program at UCLA. Are you aiming for medical school or a PhD?

Distance from your family of origin should not be a primary factor since you will be growing and changing more than you can predict now in the first years of college.

Question by jenniferlemoine2007: Good science (physics or chemistry) question?
Looking for a topic to write a 2 page essay on…has to be on physical science, physics or chemistry that has been in the news within the last year. I really don’t pay much attention to the news really and I googled stuff but didn’t find anything interesting and what I did find interesting was over 1year old. Throw out suggestions, my essay will be from a topic I probably don’t know any thing about so in retrospect I will be learning and just might get me a lil bit more interested in science.

The LHC is finding some evidence towards the existence of the Higgs Boson. That’s been in the news pretty recently.

Question by Brandon G: Should I take Physics or Chemistry?
I hate science, but I need another year of it to graduate. I was supposed to go in to chemistry last year, but I avoided it. All my friends complain about chemistry. However, they say that physics doesn’t seem so great either. Now my options are Physics or Chemistry. I’m good at algebra and awful at geometry. If I take chemistry I will be with people from the grade under me and not know anyone. The main thing I hate about science is I find it hard to relate to and I don’t see myself with a career in it.

Best answer:

Answer by DoruKanji
Take physics.

Most likely, if you’re not looking into a career into science, physics will help you more. And you’ll be with people you know.
