If you're good at geography and put in the time to learn your case studies, you'll be fine. Saying that I didn't do it at GCSE, picked it up and A-level and I'm doing fine. BUT the hard part is the exam time pressure, I'm on edexcel so the first AS exam was a mark a minute and my first A2 exam was an 80 mark report based on 'previous cold environments'.
If you can do coherent relevant essays, you're sorted. If you're more into your one line science answers then you'll struggle more, especially if it's your only essay subject. Just remember there are no easy A-levels, they're all subjective.

I found A Level geog fairly challenging as the exams are very time pressured, particularly A2, and there is a lot to cover and memorise.
The skills papers are a breath of fresh air though and you get 1 at AS and 1 at A2.
It's split into human and physical geography, the human is easier (in my opinion) but i didn't find it as interesting and the physical is harder (science) but i found it really interesting!
If you enjoyed geography at GCSE, then take it at A Level, it is interesting and you'll learn a lot.
Geography at uni is pretty swell aswell :P

Is geography like psychology then? I find psychology A-level really easy, but there's a lot of stuff to remember.

No A-Level is 'easy' .. the whole point is to test you
