I have chosen my A-Level courses: English Literature, Spanish (A2), Travel and Tourism and Geography. However, the last 2 options overlap and I can only choose 1. There is no exam in T&T as it is all based on coursework. In Spanish, there will be many exams such as 6-minute speeches... I know Geog at A-level will be a ton of work but it will look better on the application to Uni, right? Which one do I choose?

Depends on what sort of student you are. If you got good grades at GCSE, do geog. If not T and T. I choose geog as one of my options but no bias.

I would say go for Geography as it is more preferred as an a level, and defiantly looks better to universities. As well if you wanted to go and do geography at uni in the future, most require a Geography A level. But really I think its how well you think you can do with three a levels. If you feel having Geography would be too much work, and you know you don't want to go on to do it at uni, maybe you could consider Travel and Tourism.

Geography is the obvious choice though if you enjoy or think you'll enjoy T&T do that instead.

A Level Geography is seen as a stronger subject than Travel and Tourism, and is considered a facilitating subject by universities. Geography would therefore make your university application stronger, so I would suggest taking Geography. Plus, if you wanted to do a degree in Geography, doing it at A Level would be great preparation. However, if you feel that Geography would be too much work for you, then perhaps Travel and Tourism would be better, seeing as you already have two facilitating subjects anyway

half the unis doing geography degree will accept another social science like sociology or economics instead of geography, for instance, sheffield, exeter, kingston. do geography with planning or urban planning degree, as it more vocational.
