    Go for the one where you have least effort and best grade. You seem to be telling us Geography. It is a well respected facilitating subject.

    If you find geography easier then go for geography. But it gets harder as there is a lot of content to cover. You're right though, history is a lot of essay writing.

    Go for whichever you enjoy most and think you will get the best grade in.
    Personally i didnt do history, so cant comment on that, but i did geography, and loved it.

    I did both, and still do both for A level as well. History is much much harder at A level, but I found that Geog was the harder GCSE. To get A* in History GCSE was easier than getting the A* in Geog. It comes down to what you find more interesting at the end of the day though, because whichever you prefer should take priority; don't disregard history just because it's a lot of writing. Geography is also a lot of 'effort'.
