    Hiya, I'm trying to pick my firm and insurance unis

    Nottingham, UEA and York are all offering me ABB

    I'm probably going to put UEA down as my insurance but I'm stuck between Nottingham and York for my firm

    Nottingham has a great course but I really didn't like the city
    But York has a great city but I was put off by the amount of science

    The York degree is environmental geography and when I visited they said that there is a lot of maths and science, whilst you'll get this with all geography degrees it seems like the York course has loads more and it's intimidating me

    I do biology at A2 and hate it and I did maths AS and to be honest, I didn't do that well so I'm not sure how well I'd cope

    I was wondering if anyone does Environmental Geography to answer my questions
    - How much science/maths is there in the course?
    - How hard it is? (when I was there they said they build you up to it but I'm doubtful)
    - Is the course completely science based? + is it also mainly focused around ecology?
    - How much (if any) human geography is there?

    Thanks and sorry for so many questions but I want to reply within the next few days and I'm so confused about which one to pick!!!
