    Something along the lines of:
    But what will you even do with a geography degree?
    You take further maths and you're not taking maths a uni?
    You're clever enough to do well in further maths but are taking geography at university?
    Do you get lots of field trips then?
    I do FM as well and I get this all the time, I'm applying for marine biology :rofl:

    Nah, I was thinking: 'Human Geography is the most mind-numbingly dull subject'
    Human geography is my favourite actually

    IMO (note), Geography is a hodge podge of so many silly little things. You should have applied for Geology, but i'm sure you will do fine. Heh.
    Pah. Geology. :talkhand:

    Meh. If there was any drastic or even notable difference in difficulty, I'm sure universities would attempt to discriminate between the boards when making the important, and in some cases as some people like to claim, 'life determining', decision that is university offers. And wtf is MEI? LOL
    MEI is an exam board, and why would unis discriminate as such? In most cases candidates get stuck with whatever board their sixth form/college chose so that would be unfair. There is a difference in difficulty compare for yourself

    Yea. I realized that after I had written the earlier post. Then wouldn't the exam boards be pressured to have similar standards and level of difficulty? Maybe the difference is made negligible in the grade boundaries; Edexcel for example has very high boundaries between the A and the A* and the differences are also quite tight. What are the boundaries like for MEI?
