    I still haven't decided whether I want to do a BSc (physical geography) or a BA (human geography) so I need to keep my options open.
    A levels I would like to study are:
    Geography
    History
    French
    Geology
    and Politics

    I need help picking the four that would help me get into uni to study Geography

    I would say take 2 arts and 2 sciences - so you can later decide if you want to do Bsc or BA

    And I know maths isn't on that list but if you want to study a science at uni maths is essential especially for top Russell group unis

    Try to keep an open mind, because you never know, in a years time you might absolutely hate geography (not saying you will, but be careful) so try and pick the subjects you like doing, rather than picking the subjects based on the one degree you're thinking of doing.

    From what I understand, the only subject you'll need is geography. The other a levels are down to you.

    Especially if you're thinking about physical geography, you should take a science ~ physics or chemistry, but take what you enjoy as there often aren't any specific requirements {other than sometimes geography}

    Languages are good - I'm doing Geography and French, and in second year you do environmental topics in French which links to what you study in Geography. If you enjoy languages it'll go really well

    I am in year 13 and study Maths Chemistry Geography, I have already applied to study Geography & Economics. I hold an unconditional offer from Birmingham. One of my choices is LSE, hopefully an offer coming in soon. You just need Geography for pure geography but I would highly recommence Maths, Chemistry, Biology or Economics. Goodluck!
