WHICH ONE IS EASIER:Geography OR HistoryWatch this thread
Which one involves more work?
1)I enjoy both of them
2)I get the same results in both subjects
EDIT TWO YRS LATER:This thread is 2 years old.And if wondering I did History and now I'm doing alvls
Edit: Did history in alvls. It was actually enjoyable but hard. In Uni now Good luck people
If you want to study a load of case studies, 90% of which won't come up in an exam, take geography
History = quite hard but quite interesting
Geography = ridiculously easy content, but lots of it, very boring
Geography is quite easy and interesting but then again a lot of case studies to remember. The coursework for history is basically source analysis but it is quite difficult compared with geography coursework.
I think you should pick geography if you are more interested in science subjects and/or want to do something with science in the future. I think that geography also helps as extra revision at science GCSE because many of the things you learn about in the geography syllabus cross-over into the science syllabus!
But, if you are more interested in the humanities, English lang/lit, you should go for history. History also helps if you wish to go down the psychology, law etc route as you do a LOT of essay writing!! My hand felt like it was going to fall off in the history exams!!
Ultimately, it is your choice and I wish you luck for the future!
History - you have to know, remember, and be able to write about a lot more facts.
I did History last year and achieved A's in my mocks, but in my final exam I achieved a C overall. There is a lot of stuff you would have to remember for History, such as dates, people, etc.
I haven't heard much about Geography, but I hear that there is coursework, and there was no coursework when I was doing my exam.
From what I can see, geography is probably a lot easier than history.
