    I know it's a long way off but it's just out of pure interest. Are your chances of getting onto a History Masters at Ox or Cam decreased if you only have a joint honours in History? It will hopefully have a degree from Cam but it will be a joint honours so not sure that's going to give me many brownie points should I ever want to so this. Just looking for an honest answer. Don't mind too much if it's a big disadvantage, but if it isn't, great! lol.

    As far as I know there's no reason why the fact that you're doing a joint undergraduate degree should decrease your chances of getting onto any masters programme. Not in itself, anyway.

    I am studying joint honours Earth and Ocean Science. Do you think this will put me at a disadvantage compared to pure Earth Science students when applying for MSc Earth Science?
