Clare College Cambridge

Applying for Geography


Admissions Requirements


A typical offer to read Geography at Clare would be A*AA at A-level or 7,7,6 (42+ overall) in the IB or the equivalent in other educational systems. Although it is not essential, most applicants take Geography as one of their A-level subjects, but the possible supporting subjects cover almost the entire range of core A-level courses. The Geography course welcomes people with a wide variety of A-level choices, including those with a strong mathematical and scientific focus, those centred in the humanities, and every combination in between.


Written Assessment


All applicants are required to take the university-wide pre-interview written assessment for Geography. Further information about this is available here.




Applicants who are selected for interview will be interviewed in the second or third week of December. Each applicant will normally have two interviews.
