at least you get 3 choices! in the uk the maximum we can do is 2 on a joint honours basis; most people will only take one subject on their course and we apply based on the course rather than the university. your system is so much better!
I am in the UK ;). It’s a bit different in Scotland maybe. At my uni you need 120 credits a year. You have your major which is worth however many credits and if you’re short you can look to other subject modules to build up those credits. So depending on what school your major belongs to, to get the right amount of credits you can do other subject modules from that school (like if you were a Physics major you could do Maths modules because they’re from the same school), or if like me your school has no specific requirements on other modules, you can do whatever subject you like (which is why I also do sociology and divinity), but you can only do 120 credits’ worth of modules per year.
So basically I just do sociology and divinity to build up my credits, and I do them because I like them, but I don’t have enough credits left over to do law or english too.
Oh god this was a ramble, sorry!
