    Honestly just go for which one you enjoy more and/or are better at (or even choose both if you want to and your school allows it).

    The subject choice at GCSE has very little ramifications for any later applications. If you want to consider doing either of these for a-level though, you should take them at GCSE so you can make an informed choice at a-level.

    Whichever you find more interesting or enjoyable. History is more essay based, whereas in geography they're generally looking for more specific answers. If you're a mathsy person I'd recommend geography, if you're an Englishy person I'd recommend history

    Geography is a little more 'sciencey' whereas I would say that History is a pure humanity. Choose which ever is your favorite!

    go for the one you most enjoy and are good at, personally, I would pick Geography, sadly I can't cause I don't have enough choices but the curriculum for our Geog GCSE looks good (with our board, I'm not sure what curriculum u have) also look at the curriculum and if you don't like it, don't take it.

    I do both, personally prefer history as it is alot more interesting. Geography is easy, but its boring and history is difficult but very interesting. Both are equally respected so do whichever one you prefer
