I didn't take geology a level but I do it at uni and I love it as a subject, especially if you enjoy and are good as geography I think it'd compliment it really well

Geography already includes geology so maybe pick psychology for more of a range of subjects. However my best advice is to flip a coin if your disappointed or excited by the outcome then you'll know what to pick

i plan to do a biology degree then a masters in neuroscience or paleontology.which again puts me at the predicament of a level psychology or geology as they both relate to the degrees that I want to do.

I imagine the geography should have you covered for if you want to do a master's in paleontology, so perhaps doing psychology will help on the neuroscience side? Although my knowledge of how psychological it is is limited, so I don't know if this is very helpful.


Good luck on making your decision!

You already have 3 subjects. Why are you wanting to take another one? Universities will just ignore a 4th subject. It'd be pointless doing an extra one since it'll do you no favours apart from giving you more stress and an increased workload.

Actually very true, focus on the 3 you have already chosen or switch one out for geology or psychology, but either way make it easier for yourself. I had the same problem until someone pointed it out to me

At my school we have to do 4 and personally for me i already know most of the content for politics AS so i imagine it wont be too much of a hassle.
