Unless you're a lot better at geography, go with History as you like it more

Are they both in the same option line? If they are, then go for History considering your career ambitions. If you're able to choose both, however, go for both! Geography isn't difficult so you should be able to get a decent grade if you're good at it anyway. And History complements Geography so go for both if you can. Otherwise go for History, like I said.

Go for the history, you can always do the Geography at a later date if you so wish to. Education doesn't finish when you leave school, a lot of GCSEs are done at college now.

Pick history. I did both, and although in Years 7-9 I always enjoyed and did really well in Geography, I much preferred GCSE History to GCSE Geography.

The same sort of thing happened to me. I didn't mind Geography in KS3 but I really came to hate the subject at GCSE. One unit of my GCSE History course was boring and History wasn't even one of my original considerations, yet I still enjoyed it much more than Geog. I had the same grade in both, though.

Same! I switched from Spanish to History last minute, whereas Geography was my first choice when picking my GCSEs. I found GCSE History quite fascinating, whereas I could barely concentrate during Geography lessons. The only thing I disliked about History was the coursework, but I’m pretty sure that there isn’t any coursework in the new 1-9 graded GCSEs

History, you will regret struggling through 2 years of a subject you don't like

If I was you I would choose history because you want to be an archaeologist and you need that kind of degree but if you are stuck maybe choose both and ask if it is possible do so.

I hope this helps!
