Geography entry requirements

    • Thread Starter


    I've been looking at geography courses and at a number of universities, the BA has higher entry requirements than the BSc. Is a BA considered harder??

    The BA courses are not 'harder' at all, they are of similar difficulty to a BSc. However, BA courses often have more of an emphasis on the human side of Geography, whereas the BSc offers a more physical and therefore scientific approach.

    BA simply could be more popular, so therefore they have to limit the applicants by raising the grades
