    Depends on what you are studying, topics wise.

    Women's suffrage >>>>>>>>>> Soil science

    Urban geography >>>>>>>>>> Lead up to WWII

    Overall I like geography better but history is still awesome

    Both are brilliant, but I prefer history personally. History is just sooo good; it's my best thing

    Geography!
    I love Physical Geography
    Also, history isn't anywhere near as useful as Geog

    I do both... Physical geography, two thumbs up. The rest, however, is a big fat bore (imo anyway)!
    Which brings me to history: No word of a lie, it's the only lesson which I actually fully 100% focus in(no phone,no nothing lol)... It's so damn interesting! Once something captivates your interest, you don't mind writing an essay about it nor does it take you ages to revise the concepts! So yeah, I'd say history

    Physical geography is the most boring part of geography!! Human geography is the bomb Sometimes I couldn't care less about soil or rivers or limestone pavements or wave-cut platforms or vegetation succession........ the list goes on.

    :eek:! This is the sad bit, I haven't learnt any of the things that you have listed! Two of our units are based on human geography (urbanisation and tourism) and only one is based (natural hazards: wildfires, earthquakes, volcanoes and tropical storms) on physical geog I'm not even commenting on the bit in bold, it's just shocking LOL! It's ten times better to learn about the earth than how tourism is forever fluctuating in different parts of the world I mean crikey :/ lol!

    Have you taken it for a level?

    I study history at A-level although I didn't take it at GCSE (should have done really, chose French instead) because I wanted to understand more about British history and the world wars, plus I'm much better at writing essays than short technical answers. I took Geography at GCSE but hated the coursework and human geography really really bores me.

    Don't get me wrong, I do still enjoy physical geography, it is just soil science that makes me want to cry. Urbanisation and tourism are interesting, don't diss!

    No I do Scottish Highers instead of A Levels but I think they are similar in content. But I am going to do geography (BA, so more human than physical) at university

    Everyone that i know that did geography finds it so much harder because of the case studies...I did history for gcse and it was so good, all you have to do is write essays and do a bit of coursework its really fun i'd say history
