Geography is quite vast, you'll learn a bit of geopolitics and slightly a bit of economics (depending on what your sixth form chooses for A2), a bit of science for physical geography (e.g. weather formation), and human geography (e.g. how population dynamics effect the globe, resource allocation, economic development). It's quite an interesting subject more so than what others thinks.

Now Economics its pretty self explanatory. It's quite interesting and very useful for anyone wanting to work in the Finance sector. I'd suggest you first decide which one interested you most, since your A-level choices will not determine what sort of career you'll lead to or be a deciding factor in you getting into a particular uni (unless you are applying for a course that specifically state that you must do a particular subject).

bro do 4 subjects and drop one after u feel lile one of them is not good for you.
I was undecided between F maths and Business so picked both, now i've dropped f maths and this has saved my life. I actually enjoyed maths at GCSE but could not coope with too much.

So long as you have Chemistry and Maths (not required by most, but very useful), they won't really care what your 3rd or 4th subject is on.
