History or GeographyWatch this thread
i think geography is regarded as the easier one out of the two but it might depend on what your strengths are and where your interests lie? i did gcse geography and found it pretty straightforward, i felt like you could get away with using more common sense on the human geography component so i didn't revise for it as much.
History was easier in my school. My friends hated doing Geography because they had to do so much field work. I'm totally biased because I'm going to be doing a History degree this year but I would seriously consider doing History. Ultimately, check out the different GCSE specifications for each subject and look at which one interests you more. I hope this helps.
I got a Grade 9 in Geography GCSE, but a grade 4 in History GCSE. I found Geography so much better than History, and everything links together so it's easy to learn the content. I'm dyslexic, so extended questions were very difficult in History. There's a lot of content too, but sometimes people enjoy the broad curriculum. If you ever consider carrying either through to sixth form, then I recommend taking it for GCSE.
