btw, ur stpm 2010 leaver right? how's ur result? =]

are you interested in taking double degree too?
I post my result the stpm 2010 thread.

well, i never thought about it yet, the problem with it would be cost.

However, wouldn't it be better to complete a master rather than a double degree?

changing degrees usually is okay, then again, different uni different system but IMO no uni is that mean to not give u that choice.

just think about it this way, in uni, you have more flexibility, as long as you have taken all the necessary (compulsory) subjects for you degree, you will have electives (non-compulsory), which most people will include easier subjects.

ah, i say what i mean, i dont know how to explain to you what "subjects" i mean. I know nothing about how uni works before uni, but doesn't really matter that much. plus, some uni works slightly different way than others.

If you want to cross discipline, below is an example of people who cross discipline successfully. He is the most highly paid professor in UC Berkeley (not counting the football coaches).

I have seen a few who have double degrees in their undergraduate, but nowhere at this level.
It is not unusual to see people with math/CS/eng/physics background going to quantitative analysis in the financial world.

What's meant by "crossing discipline"?

btw, in the link you posted, what is actually "M.A." and "M.Sc."?

I think crossing discipline means changing fields, from Science to Arts, from Biology to Business, something like that.

M.A. means Master in Arts, M.Sc is Master in Science.
