I am debating whether to take Geography and Biology at A-Level, I want to take Geo-Science at degree level and i am not sure which is more suited, a lot of the entry requirements on the university websites say to have two sciences as well as Mathematics, but some include Geography as well.
I find Geography easier and think that i will succeed in that more than in Biology but i am able to take either and get the grades.

I am currently studying:

Mathematics
Physics
Biology (but maybe Geography)

tbh biology is only an advantage if you're interested in a palaeo heavy degree. If you prefer geography then it will be useful. I personally found both chemistry and physics were more use than maths (but I did physics when it contained a lot more mathematical content than it does now) - but then my interests were more towards mineralogy and geophys.

People start geoscience degrees with a massive range of backgrounds - that's why the first year of any course will always be designed to bring everyone up to the same level for the basics.
