GCSE History vs GeographyWatch this thread
I took both at gcse and I found that geography was easier over the three years as a workload (I didn’t have any coursework though) overall however history was easier to get the final grade
I found history easier as I found it more interesting. On the exam board I did (WJEC), the geography was looking a lot at rivers and things and I couldn't get interested in it, which I believe lowered my grade. Where with history I was really interested in the second world war and Jack the Ripper. With both subjects I was given coursework which I believe counted at 30% (?) of my final grade.
Take whichever one you believe you will enjoy, as this will give you a better chance of a higher grade. I don't know about the medicine degree, but I've applied for nursing and they only ask for GCSE Science.
Hello everyone. Over the past few days I've been thinking about my GCSE subject choices. I've decided on the other GCSEs, and am hoping to take a route to doing a Medicine degree. I'm also thinking of Law as a backup in case I don't get the GCSEs needed. Both of the courses are done by CCEA and I get fantastic grades in both subjects. I think Geography would be more Science orientated, but History would be more useful for Law. What do you guys think? I enjoy both of the subjects equally.
What topics would you be doing for your board?
