    It's a rather niche degree.

    Economics and Geography.

    Even UCL had it for adjustment last year, so I'm assuming it's not that popular .

    Cool, after graduating would you go onto do something with economics, or geography?

    I'm hoping to go into consultancy, tech or if not, go work in the Big 4 for advisory. This is mainly the economics side.

    For the geography side, probably urban or transport planning for places like TfL.
    I chose a joint honours as it opens up more doors for me.

    How about you? What are you doing at university?

    Ah right that sounds great.

    Just finished my AS exams in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science. I'll be dropping Computer Science. Hopefully going to study Physics at uni - St Andrews is the dream, but I'll also be applying to Edinburgh, York, Nottingham, and Birmingham.

    Im in exactly the same position (same grades and all). What did you apply for?
    Chemistry at Durham, with Warwick as my insurance
    It's a shame, I loved Warwick but the entry requirements are ALMOST as high as for Durham so I am quite likely to miss BOTH if I don't get the grades for my firm. How about you?

    For 3B 15 markers I did: how and why have socialists supported collectivism; conservatives social hierarchy; marxists and anarchists + the state
    45 marker: anarchism
    4B 15 markers: feminism criticisms; liberal criticism of multiculturalism; deep ecologists + sustainability
    45 marker: nationalism

    I think we did the same questions apart from that one 45 marker... :eek2: I thought the 45 mark questions went excellently, you?
    Tbh, I struggled a bit with the 15 markers - especially the socialism and anarchism ones in 3B and the feminism and ecologism ones in 4B. I checked the mark schemes and managed to fit in a fair amount of information, but it was a bit of a mess and not well written.



    Yes, it is. Which questions did you do and how did you feel about it?
    For me I thought the first paper had great 15 markers but I found the anarchism 45 marker tricky, and with the second paper it was the other way around. I think I did all of the same questions as you except the 15 marker on multiculturalism! Immediately after I did the sustainability Q I wished I'd done a different one 😞Politics is definitely what I have my lowest expectations for, I think I really let myself down. Good luck though! 😃
