    I'm inclined to say Geography... but i've never done it...

    i got 99/100 in Unit 1 Econ, without much revision. So Economics is probably easier (at least to me)

    Everyone here seems to be saying Geography is the easier subject, but I would have thought Economics would be more straightforward - if only because there is less 'practical' work. At GCSE I remember spending a lot of time outside counting cars, doing projects on development in the local town (the CBD etc) and visiting places with interesting looking rocks.
    If her Geography course contains a practical coursework element then she's pretty much screwed

    I think geography. I study both, geog has way more content, but you just have to learn - pretty straight forward.

    Econ has more explanations and things so it depends on what you're good at

    Thanks for the input everyone! Flicked through mark schemes and textbooks of both subjects- definitely doing Economics!
