    history so that when you have variation. Unis love variations, and at the moment your sujects consists of science based subjects. And even if you were applying to do something scientfic at uni, to have a humanties subject will show variation and that you are wide span of knowledge.

    I would go for geography because it complements your other subjects well but it depends on your future plans. I did biology, chemistry, maths and geography if you have any other questions.

    well i was going to do economics before instead of hist or geog, so which would be the better replacement?? also, some think that geography is looked less highly upon by unis than history- future plans (finance/ investment banking hopefully)- probable a2 subjects- maths, chem, (hist or geog)

    Do history! It seems very interesting and gives you a lot of skills that will be very helpful for you in the future eg. analysing, arguing etc.

    History may have a slightly better reputation than geography, but I don't think there's much in it, to be honest. I definitely wouldn't say geography was looked down on, so if you feel you'll get a better grade in it and will complement your other subjects better, do it.

    Geography is not looked down in, its up there as a respected A level. In fact, you will find some universities accept Geography in place of a traditional science i.e. biology, chemistry etc

    History has economics in it as well. And History is a highly respected subject because it is quite a hard subject and requires many skills.
