    I need to grow my grades fast after not doing particularly well or as well as I’d like in 1st Yr 12 tests. I do chemistry economics and geography and don’t do anything out of school other than HW and in my frees I go to town or play cards. I do this because I can’t think of anything to do for my subjects. However, I was doing maths but recently picked up geography so I’ll be copying up over half term

    Go to your local library and read copies of The Economist. Take an interest in current topics like Climate Change, deforestation, GM Crops, Renewable Energy etc.

    These are all topics I’m interested. Would a geography degree cover this by any chance because I’m in year 12 and need to decide. Economics is kind of off the table because I don’t do maths

    What a degree covers will depend on the specific courses at each university. It's early days for you now at this point but if you're curious do a bit of research.
