I want to do s degree in geography and am currently choosing my a levels. I want to take

Geography
French
English
Maths
Biology

However, at my sixth form I can only take 4 a levels rather than my preferred 5 so I was unsure at which one to leave out as I do not want to limit my future options.
Thanks x

Hello, I've also been in the same boat as you and I've applied to study geography at university next year.

In my opinion, I don't think English is that necessary unless you want to do some form of English or essay heavy subject at uni, which you don't. With French, you'll write a fair amount, but in a different language of course. Geography does have some essay aspects with the extended questions.
Biology overlaps with Geography quite a bit in A2 (if you're doing AQA), which makes it easier and it improves your data analysing skills with the annoying application questions.
Maths will help out with Geography, as you'll do some statistical tests (AQA) and you'll often have to interpret some form of data in Geography.
