I really like geography and art. However I know art is deemed as a a weaker subject choice by university's. I really want to attend Oxford university though unsure which levels to take and what jobs there are in the geographical field as well as art. Really appreciate any help. Thank you.

The short answer really is, do what you want to do. If you have a dream and a vision, you shouldn't let anyone stop you AND furthermore, you shouldn't let people's views on qualifications stop you.

Art is weaker compared to what? Sciences? First off, they are different things that require different skill sets. If you want to do an art course at Oxford, then pick the A-Levels that you will need to get you there. (and the ones you will enjoy doing for two years).

Also, if you are applying for an ART course, and art A-Level will not be viewed as 'weak'.

NOW let's answer the question at hand xD
I didn't apply for art, BUT I have a feeling that any art/geographical subject would want you to take Art/Geography at A-Level, and get that to a high grade. (They would probably also want to see evidence of a portfolio to show off your arty skills ) As well as taking your subjects that you 'need' for uni, it may be an advantage to take one that's not really directed at your course. (Unis like broad students)

I'm not an expert on jobs, but I'm sure there are plenty of careers in both disciplines.

I hope this helped you
