    I've got to write some crappy urban landuse essay and it seems so pointless! After the Easter hols we're going on a field trip to Bristol, missing a whole day's lessons, just to look at urban landuse!! Please, someone tell me before I go INSANE, whatever is the point of this?!

    My mate much prefers human to physical, but he'll try and include both in our conversations , it's an amusing gimmick, particularly when we label each other's specialisms as "mickey-mouse".

    I like glaciers and plate tectonics best ! My dad lectures in geology, so hardly surprising i guess...!

    lol at GCSE we did human and physical geography and yes you're right, it is the most dullest area of geography

    came out with an A tho ^^

    A very sensible subject

    And yes human geography (and the thought of having to spend a week long field trip in weymouth with the swots who were doing A level geography) was the reason I didn't carry geography on to A level (plus the emphasis on coursework :yawn: ).

    my coursework was something like 90 pages long =/ ( the major piece )

    my GCSE geography course work was 25 pages (the minimum that was allowed) - including the coversheet and index pages at the front and the bibliography page at the back. It was on human geography (is Castleton a honey pot town :rolleyes: ) and didn't interest me in the slightest.

    I got 9% for it - so took a massive 2.25% forward with me into the exam.

    Hence the B :cool:

    The people who continued geography on to A level had between 150 and 250 pages of coursework...I always have and always will consider that very very sad. All that extra work for an entire extra grade :confused:

    Good grief, that's completely excessive! I got an A* and my coursework was only abour 27 pages :confused:

    The people at my school all did 90 or so pages just for GCSE!

    I prefer human to physical geography. I just find it easier and more interesting. Although I admit urban land use can get tedious! I prefer migration and stuff

    human geography ; hm wouldht than include migration and stuff? in which case that wins hands down against physical. i remember things like helicoidal flow from as geography. my lord, how boring.

    each to their own though! ;p

    Human geography isn't boring at all! In fact, I did geography at A-levels and most of the people in my class preferred it to physical geography by miles! I loved studying demographics, urban land use theories and models, migration, tourism... the list can go on and on. It was definitely some of the most interesting stuff to me in sixth form. Physical geography on the other hand... uck! Actually, I guess it's tolerable, but to me it was a lot more hard work. I had people trying to convince me to do geology or some kind of geoscience (leaning more on the physical geography side) because i did geography, chemistry and physics, but I knew from early on that I much preferred human.

    Ooh yes I've gotta redo my bloody GCSE Geography coursework by Friday - I HATE CASTLETON!!!

    I got the second lowest mark in my whole class. The person that got lower than me was a special needs kid!

    I can't really be bothered with Geography any more, Only 1 GCSE out of a total of 13 .

    How sad... geography is such a wonderful subject! Anywayz, you say you can't be bothered with it now, but if you get 12A* and 1 C, D or E you would be bothered. Don't give up. Keep trying, even if you think the subject sucks.
