70% of it is about geography, 30% is extra-curric stuff. Do you think that's ok??
Mine (although not for Geo) was 689 words, with a roughly 50:50 subject/EC split.

A fine balance! As long as you include how some of your other subjects link to geog (where useful) in the 70%

yeah id say it would be important do say how the a levels your doing support your studies into geography
eg. for me im writing about how chemistry is useful when studying soils and soil forming processes and when looking scientifically at global warming
and how a level computing has given me the skills to break problems down and go at them in a logical way, while sociology has made me more aware of social problems in geography and also the research methodologies involved with the social sciences.

I find it ironic that Bristol, Durham etc. are very competitive for geography, yet about 35% ish of Oxford applicants again an offer - Apply to the right college, and it can definitely be 40-45% who gain an offer.

Yes, the standard of applicant is higher, but surely not by much at all, and considering it is Oxford and all...

Sorry, bit random there!

Yeah i know, i may use it as my last choice! One of my AS geography teachers went there but i can't talk to her about it because she's gone and left without telling us!
