Is a history degree useful?
If I am studying history what a levels should I take out of:
. Economics
.Business
. Geography
. Sociology
. Religious Studies, Philosophy & Ethics (this is one A level even though it sounds like 3!)

If I were to study Geography instead what A levels would be useful?
Is a Geography degree more useful than a history degree?
Need to decide which one to do

do you not have a stronger preference for geography or history- the subject you enjoy more is probably the one you should study at degree level. you probably gain a wider range of skills from doing a geography degree, but lots of graduate schemes nowadays don't ask for a specific degree subject. you should pick a levels you enjoy and that are relevant to what you wanna pursue after sixth form.

I don't think it really matters, perhaps geography (almost as insurance in case you change your mind & choose to pursue a geography degree) then whatever you most prefer, it doesn't make any real difference.

do some research on history degrees then and their requirements if it's a subject you are genuinely considering studying at uni, go for it.

You defo need History a level. I dont think there any other required subject so I suggest taking the A levels you enjoy (research the entry requirements of the unis you want to go this) and the other subjects dont really help with history but maybe economics but not that much. For geography, geography a level is essential.
