    It depends on the Uni, some offer courses which are more weighted towards one or the other. I wanted a course with an equal split, so that's what all the ones that I am applying to have What do you want to do?

    Economics and Geography at UCL. Just found out that this degree is extremely difficult and hardly anyone gets a first. There goes my hopes of getting onto a top Master's programme Then again, I do like a challenge

    English and Psychology, which I'm sure is an equal split best of luck!

    I guess it's an unusual combination in the sense that not a lot of uni's offer it, but (human) geography and economics overlap in so many areas. In fact, there's even a field called economic geography.

    English and Psychology - now that's an unusual combination! Good luck with your application

    I was thinking earlier, does doing a joint give you an advantage or not? I mean, it must be harder to persuade two admission officers from two different subjects, rather than just the standard one...

    I'm really not sure - probably Sussex, or in fact Lancaster. In a way I just want to go to all of them! That sounds good
