    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I’m picking my GCSE options at the moment and I am sure of all of mine:
    - English Lit
    - English Lang
    - Double Science
    - Maths
    - Further Maths
    - German
    - Art
    - Business Studies
    ... apart from my humanity?!
    At my school you have to have a humanity out of RE, History and Geography. Overall, I just want to have the easiest one? So any thoughts would be appreciated.

    re and geog are generally found to be easier than history but it really depends on your personal strengths. which have you found easiest so far in your life?

    I do History and RE.History is easy and interesting,but alot of writing and dates,events to learn.
    RE is easy and can be boring and also writing.But like I said it is really easy if u study and remember things.First find out what topics you are going to to for the humanities.And which ever one interests u the most should be the one u choose.

    we had to do re at my school then either history or geog, i chose geog and am finding that much easier than re but it all depends on what you are most interested in as you will generally excel in that

    I do history and rs and i ADVICE RS. Idk whether its cus i have a good rs teacher but ove enjoyed Rs throughout the two years and its really broaden my knowledge whereas all history has given me is stress... Truthfully history takes up a lot of time because you have to know so many details whereas RS you yes need to learn quotes but many of the quotes you can recycle and use in many different ways. However, if you truly do love history go ahead

    i do geography and rs and would advise one of those... most people I know find history hard and the average mark is like a 4 and I'm at a grammar school. It just depends if you prefer writing lots of essays or learning more facts (but there are essays in geography and fact learning in rs so it's up to you really)

    History is really useful if you want to do academic/literary subjects in college/uni.
