Whatever you do dont go to ardentinny! Worst 4 days of my life. They made us climb up this MOUNTAIN (okay it was a hill but it took nearly 4hrs to get up!) and i cant even remember why. Has anyone made any use of the skills (ha) they learned on fieldwork? I sure havent, my study only involves maps and maybe taking a few photographs! Worst thing is i had to pay £65 for the pleasure.

Im actually thinking of dropping Geography now. Does anyone know of any good careers it can lead to? Or of anyone thats glad they took it? I just dont see the point in putting myself through all the stress and workload anymore.

Stress and workload? This is the only advanced higher I'm doing as well as 3 highers and I find its the least straining. You don't have to be a teacher or lecturer with a geography degree, there are various things you could do, environmental management, weather forecasting, or town planning for instance.

Haha yeah I suppose it wouldn't be all that much work...if I actually did it . I'm just lazy and can't be bothered doing my Critical Issues outside class, I've gone wrong somewhere with it and its too late to start again, so i have to try and fix it up. I've spoken to my teachers and theyve talked me out of dropping it anyways, so looks like I'll just have to get my lazy, procrastinating ass to work!

How are the geographical studies going? I'm doing a soil study and I've done most of the work for it I just need to sort the presentation out and do some more statistical tests.

What statistics do you learn in AH geography? I'm just wondering because I'm doing AH applied maths which is 2/3 stats.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Spearman's Rank, Chi Squared, Pearson's Product Moment, Nearest Neighbour Analysis, and Standard Deviation.

Out of all the stats you've mentioned our course does everything apart from Nearest Neighbour Analysis.

Do you get formula lists and tables in geography then?

You will usually get given the formula for a question but you should know the formula for one test like Spearman's Rank because last year you didn't get any formulae.

Edit: You did actually get formulae last year but the question was a bit weird.

My Geographical Study was handed in today. I'm quite pleased with it although a number of my statistical tests didn't show a correlation. huh.gif
