Have searched for a similar thread with no results (although I know the search tool isn't the best.)
Someone suggested a thread for people applying the next cycle (September 2016 entry) to study Geography which is a great idea! For discussing course content/opinions of the universities/ 'human or physical?!' etc.




Here's a link to the University Connect page for Geography; you can upload your own profile and look at other applicants' grades and offers. You may also want to refer to the 2015 applicants' thread for more information, or the TSR Wiki entry for Geography Degrees.

I am looking to study physical geography! Just got AAAB at AS with 196/200 ums in geog, moving on to year 13 with AAB. Loughborough is my favourite at the moment! But can't choose between the others as there are so many I like!

I was considering taking geography at Uni. I know with resists i can achieve the average offer of BBB. Would a uni say they will give me a conditional offer off BBB if my prediction for alevel is BCC. i got CDD ( which isnt a true reflection on my ability)

I got AABB at AS with 173 UMS in geography which isn't brilliant considering I got full UMS in the mock exam! But I did know I messed up the exam a bit! I was thinking of applying to Bristol, Exeter, Nottingham,UEA and Sussex do you think I have a chance?

Definitely! None of those require an a* as far as I know and so if you can bring the B up they should all be within reach!

Hi, I got a C in Geography A/S, (I was est. A/B) and got higher in both my other 2 subjects. I'd really like to still apply for Geography degrees, and the uni's I fancy are all asking AAB-BBB. Do you think I'll get any offers?

I got A in geography at AS and then 2 Cs, do you think I'd be able to get into a uni offering AAB/ABB? And does anyone know a good uni which I can put down as an insurance? At the moment I have Newcastle, Sussex, Lancaster(who require AAA) and Nottingham. I don't think I've done enough at AS to get the grades I need to get into these unis, can grades go up at A2 if you put the work in?

I reckon with hard work you can go from ACC to AAB, you can definitely go up at least a grade with hard work

Try and get some relevant work experience that you can refer to on your personal statement. That's what i did and i think it will help my application, and i actually enjoyed it at the samw time

Can't think of much which is relevant to a human geography course? Especially now that summers over it will be difficult 😔

My school's uni advisor said that competitive unis wont even look at your personal statement if you're not predicted the required grades

Maybe re-take one or both of the AS units this ummer for geography? That way you could persuade your teacher to predict you a B or an A to increase your chance of getting offers
