Again, great. Close to the centre, academically decent without particularly much work.

It's got connections with Wales, so a lot of Welsh people go there. My dad went there because he's Welsh.

My essays are nothing special, whenever people quote sources a lot of the big words are lifted from the author in question.

Whilst Geog gets a ton of stick for being easy (which in fairness it is here, few get low marks), a very low number get a 1st. But get a 2:1 and you're sorted.

Mods (1st yr exams) we had 15 1sts, 60 2nds (2:1s and 2:2s) and 11 3rds, no fails.

Final exams it was abt 20 1sts, 60 2:1s, 15 2:2s, 2 3rds and 1 unclassified pass.
