    I think I'll be able to score a B, maybe a low A. I'm planning to drop geography for this, but I think I can get an A* for geography so I don't know if it's worth it. I do learn both subjects in school, I just don't want to take both exams because I don't think I can do as well with too much subjects haha.

    Personally I would choose Geo in that case, just for the A*. Add maths, I can see helping a bit with A-level maths/FM, but not necessary by any means.

    if you can get an A* in geography, stick with that - additional maths only really helps with parts of C1, C2 and M1 i think (suvat and kinematics) so it's not like you'll be behind or anything

    Go for geography as you will already have the normal maths and it's a shame to give it up if you are expecting an A*. Add maths is only an extra qualification anyways

    It would be helpful if you are planning to study maths further in the future. You haven't mentioned whether this is the case or not.

    I'd definitely swap the Geography for more maths if you're planning on doing it at A Level then, It'll make your life easier later on. I didn't do History or Geography at GCSE and I turned out fine
