I would go with what you're good at, you'll probably enjoy it more. It's only gcse so it shouldn't limit you too much for a level choice.

That being said just double check that you don't need to study a certain subject to be let onto the a level course.

E.g. if I wanted to study psychology at a level, they [the school/6th form etc] might say that I need a B in biology.

All in all you should be fine, as I'm assuming you do English which would qualify as an "EsSaY bAsEd SuBjEcT"

As someone who is taking history at gcse and has considered law as a career, both is acceptable. When applying for Law degrees, you do not need specific GCSEs or even A Levels. An essay subject is recommended for the amount of essays you probably do at uni. History gcse is very interesting and is my favourite subject at the moment. Do what you enjoy as your grades will matter more

History at GCSE is really interesting even when I wanted to pick Geo a few years ago also. I can't really speak, nor can anyone else on how you will find the course because there are so many different options your school can pick e.g. Medicine + Normans + Russia + Conflict and Tension: Gulf War was the areas our school picked. Its pretty easy to get high grades in if you know how to structure your answers and legit just revise the content (and by that I mean every single sentence given to you because the examiners can give you some very dodgy questions like they did in the medicine course one time)

Do what you're good at as both of them are essay-based subjects which you will need when it comes to doing Law. I actually took History and Geography when I was doing GCSEs and dropped History because I just can't seem to memorize the content. In my opinion, Geography is more easier because as long as you understand, you can answer the question with your understanding compare to History where you have to do a lot of memorization. Also, I am in my Year 12 now and I also want to do Law as my career and I also took Geography as one of my A-Levels and definitely worth it and less difficult compare to History.

history has almost no applicable law in it and no gcse is particularly relevant to degree level law anyway - its a gcse!
