    I originally chose maths, geography, biology and physics as A-levels, planning to drop either biology or physics after year 12. But looking at the specification, I couldn't stand to do physics, even though I'm alright at maths. I'd hate revising it, so wouldn't get a good grade.
    Now I have to decide on a fourth A-level to take, which is difficult as I'm not sure what I want to do at university or beyond, maybe something to do with geography. I got A*s in all subjects at GCSE, so that's not a barrier.
    I just want to pick something I'd enjoy, and would be beneficial

    Do another subject you that you liked at GCSE, regardless if it goes well or not (in which it really doesn't have to). I also did Maths, Geo and Bio, and took Further Maths as my 4th options.

    Geology.
    I'd love to do geology, but there wasn't enough interest for it to run

    Then maybe Chemistry. I suggested Geology for this reason that you said that you wanted to do something in Geography.
