Hi, I'm thinking about dropping geography.
If you do it, do you like it?
Are the case studies really that tedious (a lot of people have been telling me that they are?)
What was the coursework like?
Do you regret it at all and would you have taken it if you got to chose your options again?
What exam board are you doing/ did?
Thanks!

If you do it do you like it?
Yes, it was one of my favourite GCSEs.

Are the case studies really that tedious (a lot of people have been telling me that they are?)
They are a pain, but people exaggerate. There is quite a bit of information to remember but it's nothing compared to the volume you need for History.

What was the coursework like?
The independent research one was really fun - I did mine on Krill overfishing in the Antarctic and I really enjoyed it. The fieldwork focus one I enjoyed less, but I still wouldn't call it boring.

Do you regret it at all and would you have taken it if you got to chose your options again?
No, and definitely!

But remember, everyone is different. Just because I liked it doesn't mean you will. However, dropping GCSEs generally isn't a good idea and you should definitely discuss it with your teacher first.
