Probably RE (not sure, it's just what my friends had been telling me), and also Environmental Management, which is quite like geography, but I loved the subject Sociology is okay i guess, its definitely as hard as geography or history as it requires you to memorise a lot of key terms and the aqa exam has 12 marker questions etc, with a short timing. Not sure about travel and tourism? :/

Sorry if I sound rude but picking the subject which people say is 'easiest to learn in a short time period' is a terrible way of going about it. Different people are better at different things and you have your own strengths and interests.

I took geography, history and religious studies at GCSE so if you have any queries about these then please message me or ask me here. Please remember that I can give general advice as both GCSEs and A Levels are undergoing serious change.

Personally I enjoy geography which is why I also took it for A Level. GCSE is a lot of memory work and in geography, it's details about case studies. These often include numbers and statistics related to that topic. So for example, in a topic about river flooding, you will need to memorise an example with data like number of casualties, amount of rainfall and damage costs. The actual content and theory in geography is not too difficult.

History is what you expect, a lot of memory work on dates and events coupled with serious exam technique, especially essay writing. Religious studies has less content than the other two (or it did for my exams) but needs deeper understanding and the ability to think and write answers quickly as the exam times are short.

Like I said, if you have any specific questions on these subjects, do PM me.
