Hi guys
Is there anyone who studies/studied GCSE History&Geography? I would appreciate if you left a comment of your experience studying both subjects as i am not sure whether there will be too much workload studying both. I am also choosing triple science amd spanish alongside these for my gcse options. Thanks

I did pretty much the same options as you, but as long as you work hard and revise well the work load isn't as bad as you're probably expecting, although I did find that history was a lot worse than geography.

I'm doing geography & history & french - it's fine. geography is so easy i hardly take any notice of it. History is always quite difficult, so much memorising but it doesn't really make any difference taking them together.

i did both, history is a lot of memorisation - dates, names, event names, causes and outcomes of things...
geography is like a science, you learn the case studies, terminology and the processes and you can use the information again and again appropriately for exam questions

history is way more heavy, lots of content compared to geography. the essays are also more intense. Though i enjoyed history more than geography, because by the time we learnt all the course for geo, we had 2 months of nothing until exams, which is why it's boring for me.


along my history and geography gcse, i also picked french and RE and triple science. to relieve yourself from all the work piling on top of you, prepare little by little for the sciences first around christmas time. then by march, do history, and geography side by side. your language gcse is just how many words you know, so learn new common words used in gcse exams everyday.

Hi. As long as you enjoy the subjects, you'll be fine. I did edexcel gcse and you'll find there's quite a lot of memorizing, but I loved history so it wasn't a problem. I got A*s in both and if you're good at the subject you'll be able to cope just fine.

I do both, I'm starting year 11 and personally I don't find the workload too much but it really helps to have an interest in the subject, that way revision doesn't feel so much like a chore. I find both subjects rely on good exam technique as they are so easy to misread the questions and lose easy marks but the content is easy enough to learn, especially with geography where you can apply the content to real life scenarios.so as long as you enjoy both subjects you should be fine, good luck for your GCSEs!
