is geology a level goodWatch
Yh, there's definitely quite a lot of essays in Geography but you would obviously improve those skills throughout the years so don't let that put you off. I liked Geography because it was a lot more discussion and case study based in comparison to my other A Levels (Biology, Chemistry and Maths) as well as being pretty broad in content so it was a nice break and I never felt that revision was unbearable - usually learning a few good case studies and terms was all I needed to do well. I can't really say much about Geology or PE as they weren't offered in my sixth form but I suggest going for whatever you find more interesting as you'll be more engaged in the subject matter and be more likely to do well, regardless of the exam format.
it's fine, if you're interested in the subject matter. The only person I knew who did it (because it's a fairly uncommon A-level) liked it enough to go on to do a geology degree
i want to be a vet and i am currently choosing my a levels. i know i am doing biology and chemistry but am unsure on what to do for 3rd subject. i am trying to decide between PE Geography and Geology, im not a big fan of essays and a level geography seems to be essay based. but geology isnt. anyone got any opinions on it!
I do A level geology and I love it. It’s my favourite A level and I highly recommend it, however I want to continue to study it where as it sounds like you don’t. Geology is not the hardest of A levels, here are no essays, not much maths however lots of content. It is also quite a rare A level that unis like. Always remember you can swap your subjects. I swapped 3 times before I got it right. Hope this helps!!
Thanks, that was by biggest worry but i am interested in geology so far i have looked at past papers and the specifications, i am pretty good at gcse geography and hope to get a 9 in it in the future. you are correct i doubt i would choose to continue geology at uni rather than becoming a vet. is the content manageable, i am used to working lots outside of lessons so i dont think that will be much of an issue however biology is also very content heavy and chemistry requires lots of work too. if u dont mind me asking what a levels u do and what you are aiming for gradeswise, i hope you have a good day ! thanks so much
