I am going to take a levels Biology, French, Spanish and either Geography or Environmental Science (I want the choice to do either Zoology or Modern Languages at Uni, so I am going to take 4 alevels with 2 in languages and 2 in sciences). I am trying to decide between Geography and Environmental Science.

-In your opinion, which one is harder?
-Which one compliments the other subjects more?
-Which one has more relevant content?
-Which one would you reccomend I take?

I don't know about which one is more difficult, but I'd recommend taking geography. It's a much harder subject than environmental studies (as in hard vs soft subjects, not difficulty), so it'll be easier for you later on when you apply for uni - mostly if you go for zoology.

Your choices could be an issue, though, if you choose zoology. Some places might be happy with just biology, but you may want to consider another science subject like chemistry or maths - I think geography and environmental science are considered science-related subjects, rather than full sciences, and this could narrow your options come time to apply. If you go for MFL, of course, that won't be a problem!

Take this with a pinch of salt, as I don't do geography or environmental sciences - this is just what I've got from a few googles and what little I already knew. Good luck, though!
