    Infact, my favourite part of the triple sciences is all to do with geology.
    I love learning about plate tectonics, and earth processes, volcanoes and earthquakes. I watch like sooooooo many documentaries on volcanoes, my fave being by ian stewart.
    I watch all of the Yellowstone ones
    I love plate tectonics and stuff
    I am reading a book called Volcanoes , Earthquakes and Tsunamis

    Hi. I've just done my gcse's and am about to pick my a level options.
    I find it really hard because the there is soooooooo much that I enjoy subject wise, and then I have to think about my career prospects in five years time, and blah de blah blah.
    So far, I have found it really hard to cut down to these possible options, but I will deffo want to take 5 at AS, and if I choose to do a degree in geology over audiology or radiotherapy, then I will drop biology at A level.
    My possible options are-
    - Physics
    -Classical civilisation
    -Ethics and philosophy

    Which ones are really not worth taking? And are there others I should be thinking about.
    Id take physics, biology, chemistry and geography. These are faucilating subjects
