Hi everyone, can anyone give me some advice as to whether I should choose Economics or Geography at A-level. I'm equally interested in both and in quite a dilemma. My other A-levels are Biology, History and Psychology could anyone tell me out of Geography and Economics which one would complement my other A-levels the most or which one is more respected by universities. I don't know what I want to do at university and im thinking perhaps Economics will be more beneficial to me as it will show a wider range of skills whereas History and Geography are both humanities. Please help, I need to submit my options by July 1st. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

geography and history may be similar as theyre both humanities but the contents differ and therefore provide you with different skills. Economics would benefit history, where as geography will benefit both history and biology and perhaps psychology as well because human geography have some element of people's behaviour. but since your history and literature pick looks really strong, you can get away with a ''softer'' subject like economics and it wouldnt affect your combination

I would personally suggest geography. Geography is a facilitating subject, so it's more highly favoured by universities than economics (although you've got 2 facilitating subjects already, so you could get away with taking economics if you wanted to!). Geography also goes quite well with biology, which would be helpful I think!

The one you choose is up to you though of course!

Geography is more facilitating but you already have two facilitating subjects.
I do Economics but not Geography. (I wanted to though but my college didn't offer it.)
Economics is interesting.
Are you sure you want to do your other subjects. I would do both Geography and Economics.
I do Psychology which is alright. Psychology might go well with Biology.

No idea at the moment, I haven't really given it much thought.

Is Economics considered a soft subject? If so is A Level Maths, FM, Computing, Economics a strong combination.
I don't think Economics is considered a soft subject, but its not seen as a facilitating subject, whereas Geography is. Also, thanks for your suggestion.
