    I really want to study Geography at University but I've just got my AS results and I only got a B. My teachers say I should I get an A at Alevel but im worried I end up with a B overall and my choices wont accept me. My second option is to study History which I just got a high A in, and my teachers reckon ill get an A*. It wouldnt be the end of the world If I end up studying history I just dont know which I should pursue in my application.

    Hey! I only got a B in my Geography A-Level however I got accepted by UEA which is one of the best universities in the country. They're highly regarded for their geography and earth science courses! My boyfriend got a higher grade in his geography A-level but he still went on to study history.. Don't worry if it's the lower grade you persue, just go with what you enjoy!
