I picked both for GCSE and definitely prefer history. The majority of geography I just find boring. I do prefer human geography than physical geography, but I still find parts of that fairly uninteresting. History on the other hand I actually find interesting and quite fun to learn about the different topics.


Just so you know, I have got high grades in both subjects so I am not liking history over geography just because I am better at it.

Geography is more popular in my school. Too many year 8s this year chose Geography so some are being forced to do history as there's not enough teachers.

History. Always found it more interesting than staring at cross-sections of rivers and volcanoes.

I found political history interesting, but ended up picking Geography for GCSE. I dislike profusely physical geography - why should I care how a rock is broken down into sharp, angular pieces known as 'scree' in the upper course of a river?. However, I adore human geography - hence, I plan to pursue Economics (which is, in effect, just human geography) at A-level and University.

At my school, the majority picked Geography; quite a few picked History - very, very few picked both.

But if you got high grades in Year 9, it doesnt necessary mean you will attain the same grades in GCSE's.

I have always preferred history over geography and at my school around 100 students took history over geography, 20 took both and only around 30 took geography over history. I'm also taking History at A Level as are a lot of people in my class

History is more popular at my school for GCSE and A Level. And rightly so - learning about wars is way more exciting than examining a hill

I did both at Uni but ended up preferring History although the Geography coursework was more varied.

Lmao hey... History may be more popular but volcanoes and mountains are cooler than memorising various dates. Fight me.

Both were about equal, we all got told that we had to do a humanity for this 'baccalaureate' thing and that R.E didn't count so consequently about half the year did geography and the other half did history
at A level my history class was quite small and i think more people did geography

I've loved geography. It was one of my favourite subjects at GCSE's! Looking forward to doing A level geography too ! I've always been fascinated by the natural world, cultures etc
