    i am at AS level going into A2 in which i achieved A(geography) C(maths english and chemistry)
    i am currently deciding between dropping maths or chemistry.
    i want a course in which i can learn about both environmental and human aspect of geography.
    I would like to someday in the late future win a nobel prize for something i have done to change the world.
    could anyone help me???

    I've just had a quick browse on UCAS for you to see what's available. Human geography and environment (along with international development) is exactly what I'm interested in as well. I'm looking to apply to York for their human geography and environment degree which sounds perfect for you. However, I believe their entry requirements are AAB so it would depend on what grades you'll be predicted (and whether or not you'll realistically be able to achieve them). If you're not sure this will be an option, here are some other options to look at:

    -environmental geography at Canterbury Christchurch
    -environmental geography at Cardiff
    -geography, ecology and environment at Glyndwr
    -geography, society and environment at Heriot-Watt
    -human geography with environmental studies at Hertfordshire
    -geography with environment studies at Southampton Solent
    -environmental geography at Stirling

    There are also tons of human geography degrees as well if you just put a search into UCAS. I've not really looked into these courses in too much detail so it'd be up to you to look at the modules and decide if these are the sort of courses that interest you, as well as looking at the entry requirements. However, these courses might be a good place to start.
    Hope I helped 😊
