I've done three years of Geology and I think at times it can be boring but the seismology parts are really interesting. Yeah, there are geophysics jobs round where I live so it's worth it. With any degree, if you like it enough then it's worth it.

I worry it's useless as an undergraduate,I find it very interesting but seems so soft compared to a chem degree

I did my degree in geoscience. There are job opportunities in many areas; mining, hydrogeology, geophysics, contaminated land and oil and gas are probably the most obvious ones but you could also go into research and/or specialise in any discipline that interests you. e.g. seismology, volcanology, mineralogy, palaeontology etc. You can also use a degree in earth science as a base to get into other areas such as flood risk management (which is what I'm doing for a masters). If you're interested in earth sciences it's worth considering studying further

Alevels are very well suited,As my levels are in Chem bio I might be more suited to doing one of those?

I wouldn't say so, chemistry and biology are very relevant to earth science as they come into various parts of it, for example geochemistry, mineralogy and palaeontology. Many people who study earth science do A Levels in chemistry, biology, physics and/or maths without geology, as it's not as widely available
