    I know that Geography may be kind of hard as there is a lot to study, but Business is sooo easy, it is just logic. (got an A in As and IGCSE). The others no idea but they are probably easy.

    There are no "hard" or "easy" A-levels. I'm not an essay person, so I'd find some of these subjects relatively difficult. On the other hand, people always tell me that Maths is hard but I find it easy. Think about what you're good at at school and what you enjoy.

    You'll need to have a slight idea of what university you want to go to as well. Normally, universities like LSE, UCL etc. (and depending on the university course) will prefer you to have 'traditional'/preferred subjects i.e. Maths, Geo, Politics, English, Chem, Phys, Bio blah blah blah. Subjects like Business and Media are considered non-preferred subjects.

    So I would recommend doing both Geography, Politics and Media or Business rather than ruling out one of Geography and Politics. Yes A-Levels are indeed hard, but if you put the work in you can definitely get the grade you want. But I'm basing this on the idea that you may be aiming for top universities like the ones I mentioned.

    But good luck with your choices, think about where you want to be in 2 years time and don't live to regret your decision!
