    Everyone's saying there is so so much to learn, such as 25 case studies in detail etc., and I don't want to find myself struggling to keep up with the work load if I do pick geo...is there anything I should know??

    My other option would be history but I don't like analysing sources, I'm much better at just regurgitating information in an exam.

    Hi,

    Geography is so hard, and so is History. Most students who work at a grade C in other subjects are more likely to not pass, from previous experience. If you have a passion for the subject then I think you would do well but if not, you may struggle.

    Hope this helps

    25 case studies sounds like a lot of work but tbh it isn't really. Learn one once a week. I found geography pretty manageable

    I did AQA and it wasn't that bad. I don't know which exam board makes you learn 25 case studies, but with AQA I think you only have to learn around 10? You don't really have to learn them in that much detail. The name, date and a few facts about what happened would suffice.

    Apart from the case studies there isn't much content. It shouldn't take you that long to get through or to remember. Honestly I found geography to be the easiest subject to revise for but everyone's different. Let me warn you though the coursework can be hard and take up a lot of time, but if you're good with coursework it shouldn't be a problem.

    Good luck with your decisions!
