    I recently came out of year 11 with 6 A's and 6 A*'s and am going to enrol for 6th form soon. For my A Levels, I am 100% taking Maths (My favourite and best subject), Spanish and Physics, but have a 4th option to fill for AS Level. It is between Geography and Chemistry. Geography would be good as an essay(ish) subject to show diversity, but doesn't open any more doors for me at university, because I have no clue what I want to do. Whereas, Chemistry allows me to pursue different degrees (including potentially medicine). If I took Geo, I would probably drop it after year 12, where if I did Chem, I would wait until my results (and base it off which one I preferred) and drop either Chem or Physics. That way, I have an extra year to decide which career I want to take and more options as to what career I want. Which do you think I should take, Chem or Geo?

    Well I think the answer is pretty obvious as you've already thought it out. Chem sounds like the better option.
