    I thoroughly enjoy both Geography and Economics, I am not sure what I would rather study at University when the time comes. What degree would have the best future opportunities?

    It depends. Economics is generally more respected as a degree because it's more mathematical and develops your analytical skills more, making you slightly more employable. However, geography is also a repsected degree and you should do the one you enjoy the most as this is what will help you get a first class degree. You'll also have to take part in extra curricular activities to stand out from the crowd to get into a good job.

    How about a studying Geography with Economics (or visa versa)?
    Best of both worlds!

    Have you thought about doing both as a combined honours? I think a few unis such as Exeter and Reading allow you to chose almost any combination of two subjects

    Most jobs (apart from the obvious: Engineering, Qaunt, Medicine etc) will be available to you as a Geography grad.

    It's not about respect, it's about whether your CV stacks up against the next guy's - so just choose whichever you prefer and make the most of uni. Hone in on work experience, get involved with societies, travel, develop the other areas of your life, lead teams; that's the sort of stuff you need to stay competitive in the grad job market.
