    What other subjects are you studying?

    What do you want to do after A-levels?

    What do you enjoy the most?

    I do all three of the subjects you have mentioned so should be able to give you some relevant advice.

    Right now I'm doing my GCSEs. So I'm doing: English lit+Lang, triple science, maths, music, geography, history, german, Latin, rs

    After a levels I'm thinking about geophysics, physics, geology, geography or anything with seismology+volcanology

    I think i might either work abroad or become a teacher in the future. But all these are the vaguest of ideas at the moment and I'm not fixed on anything.

    My favourite subject: geography/physics

    I did those plus Further Maths

    I've dropped Geography now, but it was a good combo...

    It sounds like chemistry might be a good fit if you enjoy it. I say that because you're into physical geography rather than social and you're doing separate science. I imagine chemistry would be useful analysing samples from volcanoes etc. If you're thinking more about archaeology then history may be better. If you're wanting to work abroad then keep in mind languages. Good luck

    I was thinking chemistry but my parents want me to do an arts subject for "balance". Other ideas I've got are: government and politics, chem, my mum wants *puke* English.

    Most people say it's hard, but if you like it enough it shouldn't be too difficult.
