    I've got my results back for GCSEs and got an A in both...but I don't know which one to do at A Level.

    Other subjects I am doing are Economics, Maths and Further Maths. Both Geog and Phys go well with my A Level options but I don't know which one and I have to tell my school tomorrow morning!!!

    I enjoy the human side to Geography and I only like the maths of Physics(but don't enjoy it too much...however it does open up my options).

    I am planning/thinking of doing an Economicsy/Financey degree at a top Uni.

    Please help me which I should do...which is easier or better respected etc? I know they are both facilitating subjects.

    Thank you so much xx

    If you're doing Maths and Further Maths, some of the content in Physics will be the same. However, Physics is still a very hard A-Level, but I would personally choose Physics if I was talking Maths and Further Maths.

    Physics keeps your options open in terms of doing a degree. It also contains a lot of maths compared to GCSE.

    Geography is still a good subject to do, especially if you're going down the Economics route. That said, even if you want to go on to study Economics, more people who do Economics degrees do Physics than Geography.

    On balance, unless you really like Geography (you say you only enjoy the human half), I advise you to take Physics.

    But I feel like I didn't get a lot of the stuff at GCSE and don't really enjoy physics, but if I push myself, can I still get an A*?

    if you take physics with the other subjects then it will open more doors and better doors ( doors as in degrees)
