    I'm a year 11 student and i want to study civil engineering at university. I'm currently picking my A levels and i'm deciding whether to pick Geography or Physics at A-Level to go with Maths and Computer Science. I'm alright at physics but i enjoy geography more and my target grades are 8/A* for both subjects. Some universities take geography as a science but it looks like physics is preferred. Should i pick geopgraphy which i'm better at or physics which helps more with civil engineering for my A Level course?

    I would suggest that for engineering courses, physics is vastly preferred to geography.:sadnod:

    So a B in physics would be better then me getting an A* in geography?Because I find geography a lot easier and I think I could get a much better grade compared to physics
