Maybe Maths, English or History. I think any facilitating subject would be good. You could probably just pick ones you are interested in tbh.

Surprised no one here has mentioned geology to go alongside geography! I looked into this as a pathway a while back. The two main suggested routes were geography, then math/English and geology or geography, maths/English and either chemistry or biology.

Hope that helps x

try out economics and English or maths and geo



Economics will help out in the globalisation bit and superpowers and some of the poverty index (if your school does that for geo and econ)

Maths may help you out with coursework and the exam

English will help as it will prepare you to write quickly in the exam and in a good structure ( i don't know what exam board you have but in edxcel we had 20 markers and one 24 marker)

Geography cuz u want to do that

Some schools offer it as a GCSE but ours didn’t. My geography teacher was keen on it so he binded a lot of it into the syllabus I think it’s interesting but to be honest it’s only interesting if you like the history of the earth and previous atmospheres and stuff.

Geography would be a good start
English, economics or business. Maths is too hard and not necessary for pure geogrpahy at uni so no point struggling with that at all.
Sciences are a pain but maybe bio is a good one for memorising.
German foreign language if you did it in gcse?

Take history with it. Most geography teachers should be able to know history, even if it is basic like a level but still should be able to teach it.
