    How do I write both about geog and econ when not all the unis I am applying for offer both?

    These are my likely choices:

    Cambridge - Geography (they do both human and physical)
    LSE - Geography with Economics (only human geog)
    UCL - Economics and Geography (both human and physical)
    Durham - Economics
    Leeds - Economics and Geography

    it seems to me, that if I have 50% geog and 50% econ in my ps, both Cambridge and Durham will reject me!

    help !!!!

    hiya! I did half geography at the beginning, then economics-related stuff for the second half, although I tried to make the majority of it geographically-linked throughout so as to please Cambridge
