    should i take geography or business studies for gcse?

    I take both subjects so I may be able to help!
    Business studies is relatively interesting and you learn new content all the time. If you enjoy doing research such as how the economy is doing, business would be good.
    Geography is a lot more fun and in my opinon, easier. It contains lots of case studies and schools tend to do more trips which really helps you to learn about case studies by visiting them. 3 months ago I went to London to learn about the HIC case study...

    Overall, I personally prefer geography, however, it depends on what you want to do after GCSE. Business is also an excellent choice. I really would say they are the best --> I chose them to do for A-level (alongside Maths).

    Hope this helped!
