Which humanitarians should i take for GCSE?Watch
I'd say one of the main differences is the style of the exams.
History (a lot of my friends took) is A LOT of more essay style writing whereas geography is a mix of multiple choice, shorter answers and extended answers.
Both subjects have A LOT of content to learn so you gotta be prepared for learning loads of facts, figures and case studies in geography, or dates, years and facts etc for history.
Neither is going to be easier than the other, and don't let your friends influence your choices. After all, it's your choice. What can YOU see YOURSELF doing for two years?
