    i have to chose my a level choices soon and i defo want to do history and politics as i am interested in both however i don’t know what to do as a third option. i’m stuck between geography and maths. i am doing well in both at gcse (predicted 8s) however i find geography far easier. i really don’t want to stop doing geography but i’m not sure if it would be good to do 3 humanities. i like maths because it’s challenging but i worries a level will be really hard. can anyone give any advice on which i.s better to chose? thanks

    If you're enjoying + performing well at the subject = going to get a good grade . Better than what you'll get in maths. Don't stress yourself out and do what's best for you.

    I would go for maths, as you said you enjoy it and it challenges you more. Don't worry that the A-Level might be too hard, you haven't even started it yet! It is a good A-Level to have and I think you will enjoy it more. It also makes your choices more spread out rather than just humanities, which can restrict your options later on.

    I agree about the 3 humanities, it would limit your university options much more, but if you can't see yourself wanting to do anything other than those sorts of things as a career then I also say go for the one you like. But in the interest of keeping your options open, I would say go for maths now
