I am about to do Classics at Durham next year (if exams go to plan) but I also do geography and had the exact same problem, I've always got pretty much 100% in geography since GCSE and I found it wouldn't be enough of a challenge so I chose Classics! It's much more highly rated by employers and geography is a bit too mainstream now due to the sheer volume of people doing it

Geography is a lot of work, I mean the amount of case studies you need is vast. However the concepts themselves are straight forward. Latin is great, but obviously a much harder A level which requires thorough language and literature learning.

Oh yes freaking hate learning case studies , but I would only be doing it to AS which I heard is very similar to GCSE level content ,to what extent do you think that is true ?

Depends what you decide to study at uni. Geog is a fascillitating subject and i have just sat AS level and it was really enjoyable. Also if its an easy subject for you then happy days as its 1 less subject you need to really study for. I choose religion for same reason, automatic B and with a little revision an A, that gives me more time to foccuss on my other 3 A levels.

Content wise AS was easy, I did rivers, coasts, population and health issues. But the volume of work is far greater and there are a lot more case studies needed.

Just finished AS Geography and did: energy, rivers, coasts and populations, the content is a lot but the learning the landforms is very straight forward. Hammer the case studies and you'll get an A but it's an awful lot to remember, and find out which topics your college is doing because the energy section of AQA is the worst thing ever imo

I have just done wjec geog AS and the work is not too bad and very interesting. Geog is a facillatating subject so more highly regarded for uni.
