Really doesn't matter. Pick the one you think you'd enjoy more.

I imagine human geography has more links to economics than any aspect of physics (so you might find it more helpful/interesting) but I can't see that taking either would disadvantage you, both combinations are brilliant.

Both are good combinations for an Economics/Finance degree; however, getting into uni is like a game. Compare physics & geo - at A Level, physics is really difficult.. so if you like Geo & Physics equally as much, then I suggest picking geo. Should be a lot easier for you to get a good grade in hence higher chance of getting into a top uni as I know many friends who have to put so much time and effort into surviving physics (and getting a B at least) that their other subjects suffer. If you're indifferent about them both, choose the easier one

I also heard the geography links quite well with economics - I think I’m leaning more towards it. Thanks for the help and advice

I agree with you! I think that getting a good grade it geography would be easier than physics for me. So I think that I’m more likely going to choose geography over physics. Thanks so much for the help!
