    For A-Levels, I am planning to study Italian, ancient history, English literature and either geography OR philosophy&ethics.
    This is my dilemma, I just don't know which one to pick. I know that i would ind philosophy&ethics much easier and (this sounds very arrogant, know) it would be a guaranteed A, where as geography would be much more of a challenge. I enjoy both the subjects a lot but geography would be a lot more exciting, and open up more doors, however i'm more likely to succeed with philosophy&ethics. Aaaahhhhhhh I am never going to be able to decide!!!

    So yeah, I need opinions, thanks xoxo

    If you did GCSE geography, the jump from GCSE to AS level isn't that difficult. If you're doing GCSE geography, especially AQA, there is a lot of overlap between GCSE and AS. 3 out of the 4 modules I did in AS was pretty much covered in GCSE.
    You should be able to get an A if you memorise everything, as you don't really need to apply knowledge for the GEOG1 paper.

    Now A2 geography is a much different story....
