    Well I received all conditional offers(one was an unconditional for Birkbeck but they had to change it :/)
    Because of the high grades for Southampton, Royal Holloway is too far away, and Brighton is too expensive for us to live around, I have firmed for Portsmouth and Insuranced for Birkbeck for Geological Hazards and Geology respectively.

    I recently accepted an offer from Portsmouth for MSc Engineering Geology (2016/17), so pleased I got onto it as the Leeds course has closed and this was the only other program that was accredited by the GSL.

    Just about. I just think its unnecessary to learn the morphology of 3 types of echinoid, over 11 different bivalves and brachiopods, 4 types of trilobite etc. seems like somebody writing the OCR syllabus gets hard ons over molluscs so wrote 20% of the spec on it.

    I'm away on field work in Dorset next week which should be fun so long as the tides are out

    I wouldn't blame you mate. But if it's a standalone geology BSc in order for it to be accredited you'll need at least one year of palaeo

    Is that accreditted from the BGS? Or is it needed to complete the degree in general

    It's accredited by the Geological Society of London, you can check to see if a course is accredited (and when that accreditation will expire) here:
    https://www.geolsoc.org.uk/accreditation

    When I say expire, I mean that if you are on that course within the years stated then it is accredited (and that stays with you for life), if you were on that course outside of the accreditation period then it means either it wasn't reviewed, or the modules/teaching standards weren't up to scratch to satisfy their requirements. That doesn't mean that a course isn't good if it is not accredited, simply that a course is good if it is.

    You don't need to study an accredited degree, it's simply a recognition from the UK professional body for geologists, stating that this degree is of a high standard and provides an excellent basis and foundation of knowledge.

    As per their website:

    Accredited status provides added assurance to prospective students that a department's teaching is of the highest quality, and has been approved by an independent body of academics and industrialists.

    Lobe finned fish evolved almost instanteously after graptoloids became extinct. What evidence do we have that they perhaps may have been connected?

    easy peasy but this is an entire 10 mark essay here, you've just gotta talk about the movement, eating habits, and things unique to each of the 4 trilobites (agnostus, calymene, trinucleus and diphon)
