personally i found history easier but it really depends on how you find both subjects now - do what you enjoy the most and hopefully the grades will match your enjoyment

Do what you enjoy, everything is hard now with the new GCSEs but if you enjoy it is more bearable.I did history at GCSE and managed to get a 9, just work hard.

I was the same, I was working at top level in geography in year 9 and found it really dull whereas in history I was completely average but found it really enjoyable, I took history gcse and got an A* bc I liked it and wanted to revise it??? I feel as if I took geography I would of maybe got a B and definitely wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much and would have been less keen to revise it

In my experience, people generally find geography easier and less content heavy. I personally loved geography and I'm taking it at a level. But go with what you enjoy most (or you could do both)

Definitely do the subject that you enjoy more, it will make studying for it far easier and it can also influence your choices for subjects later, such as choosing your A-levels. I have just completed a masters in history and even though it was incredibly hard at times i thoroughly enjoyed it and have not regretted doing what I enjoy at any point.

Its subjective and down to personal preference. How have you scored in the last 2 years?
Which one interests you?
Go for the one you enjoy the most.

History needs you to write longer answers to questions, like mini essays, and you need to remember more information. Geography is quite information heavy too, though not as much as History, but it does have some long answer questions.
