    For my A-Levels I want to do: Geography, History, German and Biology.
    Do you think it's a good combination, bearing in mind I want to study Geography at University?

    I'd really appreciate people's opinions and it would also be good for people doing these courses to tell me what they're like.

    Cheers for the links!

    Wow, for the Geo course at Cambridge a modern language is 'useful'.
    Why Maths and Physics? - is it because they are more geared to physical geography?

    I wouldn't say I was particularly. I don't like to sit on the fence, but I find Human and Physical Geography both about the same in terms of difficulty and level of enjoyment/ how much extra research I put into them in my own time.

    That's why I originally thought to play it safe - History, because I'm good at essay writing. But with your suggestion of Maths and Physics I'm definitely re-considering. Thanks!
