History or Geography- which is a better subject?Watch
I find history more interesting but I would say Geography is more useful.

Geography was the most soul destroying subject I studied for GCSE being taught by a teacher who was always high didn't help much. I'd definitely say history unless your life will feel better if you know useless information like Antarctica being a desert

Geography is the more useful, history is apparently really boring in the first year... My friends do both, and they are studying medicine in history, I think I'd kill myself!
I have the same teacher for both Geography and History, so I can compare relatively well but I do Cambridge IGCSE which is very different from what you have in Britain especially in Humanity subjects.
For CIE IGCSE, History is way way more demanding than Geography, and I find History challenging and interesting. Geography can be interesting, but CIE IGCSE Geography is hella easy...if you know the case study, you are fine. You write bullshet with common sense and you get an A....at least in my case. However, Geography will link into your everyday life more than History. If you just live normally, go shopping and go walking, you would never care if Stalin sent troops to Poland, while you might care to not use cars to stop global warming.
Then again, CIE Humanities are very different from what you have in Britain so don't count on me. I personally do better in Geography but I enjoy History more. History is more interesting but Geography is more useful.
