Hi! I am currently doing geography, biology and English lit for A-level. I'm going into my second year of A-levels in September. Geography is my favourite subject I take because the content is so interesting. To answer your question 'is geography hard?' yes it is. Unfortunately at A-level all of them are hard, people say that the step up from GCSE to A-level in one of the biggest step ups. But, geography is enjoyable, and if you're willing to work at it, you can make it easier for yourself come exam time. You cover so many different aspects of geography including topics from both human and physical geography. It's so interesting! The work load was quite heavy I found, but not so much as biology.
Biology (as I'm sure you've heard from every other biology student ever) has A LOT of content. That's why it is absolutely vital to summarise summarise summarise and pay attention to your specification, it'll pin point exactly what you need to know and help you when completing summary notes, checking your revision etc.
I don't do psychology, but I have friends that do it, and from what I hear there are a lot of essays to it, but they all enjoy it nonetheless.

Hope this helped and good luck in making your decision!!
