Get Paid To Study Science?

Here's a novel idea that they are suggesting in the UK. Pay students to take A-Level science subjects such as physics!

An industry think-tank has called for students to be offered the financial incentive to take courses such as maths and physics.

It also said scientific A-levels should garner extra university entrance points to make them more attractive than subjects seen as soft options, such as media studies.

I think it is worth a try, but somehow, I also think they're missing and not solving the problem, but rather trying to address the symptoms.

I hope payment is made contingent on passing.
