    I'm planning on doing Maths, Further Maths and Physics at A-Level. Them three are now set in stone really.

    However, I was originally planning on not doing Further maths and doing Chemistry and Geography. Sadly, those two are in the same option column and therefore I can't do it.

    Therefore, I a decided on Further Maths but now I must choose between Chemistry or Geography. I don't know what I want to be in the future. I did work experience at a Chemical Supplier called SGS and have looked into becoming a chemical engineer but I'm not sure I enjoy it. I also think being a stockbroker would be good however neither fit into that. Geography on the other hand is something I sort of enjoy however I'm not sure what use I would get from it in the future other than being an environmental manager or a climatologist, neither of which interest me.

    Anyone know which works best with others or offer advice on which is best?

    Thanks :cool:

    I'd say based on your other subjects, Chem would work well :yep:
    It opens your options up to a variety of science degrees, too, rather than just physics/maths.

    Saying that, if you prefer Geography, do that instead - it's about what you like and would want to do

    Hello,

    Chemistry would be the obvious answer but by no means disregard geography, which I did at AS and A2. It is a great subject, and is one of the most employable because of the skill set gained. Geographers go into a variety of different jobs.

    If you are looking at careers in geography, this link may be good

    About the A-Level, I've really enjoyed it this year, if you like it at GCSE you'll most likely enjoy it at A-Level. The exam isn't too complicated compared to other AS Levels, and the topics are really interesting

    Geography is boring as can be.
