A level geography or A level Art?Watch this thread
I'm currently stuck on which subject to take. I enjoy them both equally but I can only take one.
Which subject do the universities value more?
If you do decide to do geography then I'll offer you some advice:
- don't treat the textbook like a bible- the case studies in there will be used by almost everyone else in the country and are likely to be out of date. In AS i did use the textbook for some case studies but in A2 i don't think i opened the textbook for the whole year. Instead I got case studies from news articles, recent events (I was lucky that i studied A2 during the year we had all those storms in the UK hence loads of material for me) and my teachers gave us some case studies from magazines they subscribed to (i was lucky to have the 2 best geography teachers ever). I made my own case studies and if you do that then you are more likely to remember them.
- take an interest in your subject- if you are interested in something then you will find it easier to do well cause you enjoy it. I enjoyed geography loads so revision was not so much of a chore for me. I wrote a geography blog throughout A levels and every weekend i would put a new articles up there which would be part of my revision.
-past papers- do loads of practice questions especially the essay style ones cause the key to those is having a good structure and technique to answering them
