I just wanted to know if A Level Economics is similar to Human Geography. You see originally I wanted to study Maths, Physics, Geography and Economics for my A Levels, dropping Economics for my AS year but now with the new changes one can only choose three subjects. Geography is a big passion and interest for me, something I really enjoy, in particular it is human geography that interests me the most. I read my sixth form prospectus the other day on the Economics section and found it similar to human geography. I am thinking if it is quite similar to human geography I may choose AS Economics over AS Geography however I think there is a very small chance I will do this. Any help will do.

P.S. Please don't rage at me if I misunderstood AS Economics.

Thank you,

depends on what degree u want to do? economics is really useful if you want to do business...but maths will get u into nearly 70% of all courses offered and physics and geography arent limiting subjects for Russell groups. These are all good subjects. So it really depends on where you feel you can perform best to get the best grade. AAB-AAA will get you into alot of unis, while ABC can take u quite a step down.

Well human geography is more about population, statistics, how the world has been affected by human and man made buildings etc. Economics is more about money and business management. So they're very different, human geography is the study of human population and how human's have affected the environment and the world, economics is simply the study of the economy, business finances and so forth.

I have to say, I was having a look at my friend's geography textbook the other day and its probably the most similar subject seen so far to economics. Geography complements economics really well in my opinion. I wish I had carried it on into A-level but did English Lit instead (dropped at AS, now doing Maths, Economics and music. In terms of those A-level choices, they are a very very good choice as they keep a lot of choices open, especially with maths and physics. In my honest opinion, I would pick geography just for the simple fact that you don't even need economics to study it at Uni (just maths). Also if you're good at it, that will make your life easier, economics can seem a bit abstract and it can seem confusing if you didn't do it at GCSE. Don't let me put you off though econ is a great subject, it's all down to personal preference really. I would definitely keep maths though whatever other decisions you might make.
