i'm in year 11 and i take geography gcse. history is alot of essay writing where you compare different sources, you have to remember specific dates and orders for the highest marks possible. obviously i am biased and would say that geography is much easier. and it really is. i am really good at english so picking history was just down to me not liking the content. geography is the easiest gcse you could take, the questions are straightforward. unlike sciences, english, history, religion etc, the exam paper is very blunt. you know exactly what they are asking from you. geography is just: memorising case studies, processes and reading a map. there is coursework for both subjects as far as i am aware of, but since the spec is changing i'm not so sure. ask your teachers and friends. also, you do not have to pick one of them! you can pick another subject instead

it is true history is a lot of essay writing (but if you're good at that sort of thing, it's alright) but don't fall into the trap of thinking Geography is very easy; it's still quite a tricky exam, just in a different way to History. For the GCSEs you'll be doing there won't be any coursework for either (I don't think). If you enjoy Geography more, though, I'd go for that, as it'll be harder to do well in History if you don't enjoy it. I agree with talking to your teachers; they could tell you if they think you'll do well in either

I am much better at history than geography but I would say go for geography because in history if you **** up one question it's going to mess your overall marks.

I do history and its great geography seems pretty boring. True there is a lot of essay writing in history but the stuff you learn is interesting and really cool. History all the way.

thank you so much, i understand what you mean by the geography course as being easy. in our school we HAVE to pick either geography or history (our school is really weird) so it was so stressful

basically georgraphy is a lottt easier so if you're aiming for easiest A*s then go for that, history is harder and a lot more knowledge based and essay writing. However history is actually very interesting and you'll likely enjoy it but geography is a bit more boring in my opinion (you have to do a lot of memorizing of the case studies for geog).
