    Geography (human geography) is more fun than aspects of history. But physical geography is less interesting, imo, than aspects of history.

    Both history and geography are huge subjects so it is difficult to compare them, but I prefer geography, in general, to history, but both subjects are amazing

    It depends on what you are studying most of the time. Parts of geography and history are snooze worthy whilst others are some of the most interesting things I've ever learnt.

    And both are a lot of work - but that mainly depends on what level you are taking it at. Is this for GCSE or AS or A2, or something else?

    I do both (at AS level) and although I prefer geography - probably because I'm better at it - I do also enjoy history. History is more work for me, and its also harder imo. My favourite subject is geography so it's hard to compare history to it

    History definately contains alot more work than Geography, for me anyways. History is reading alot of stories and memorizing them. If you like stories then you'll obviously find it easier and more enjoyable.

    I take both at A2.

    At AS I would say that history is more work. I found geography AS really straightforward and a fun subject. Yet history was more interesting overall.

    At A2 there is a lot more work for geography. (Loads of essays and research). Though I think it's been a lot more interesting than at AS. Unit 4 is fun because you get to look at a lot of different sources and I like independent work.
    I think that history is harder (for me) overall but that's because it involves a completely different style of essay writing to geography. Then again I'm still choosing to study history at university next year.
