    I took all three at Alevel and finished last year. It all depends on what exam boards you're doing out of the three I found geography the easiest (I did edexcel) Biology was really hard i did eduqas/wjec the new specifications mean the standard is very high to the point of which the material I'm learning now for my degree is the same stuff I learnt at A level because my A level stuff was practically degree level. Chemistry was also really hard as well and I recommend if you're not good at maths to not take chem

    if this helped please give me rep

    agree with previous poster, you will struggle with chemistry if you are very unconfident with maths, however this is a very good combination of a levels, although if you want to study a chemistry based/biochem degree at uni I would highly recommend a level maths if you can handle it

    I would say that there are lots of crossovers with bio and geog. It's helpful when they do crossover because you really get a grip on what you're learning. At A level, it's really important that you love what you do otherwise you just won't have the motivation to do well in them. Don't take what's seems easy because everything will seem hard at some point but also really easy at others.
