Is GCSE German harder than GCSE geography? At the moment I find German a lot easier, but does it change by year 11? Thanks

It is all relative and depends on how much you enjoy each subject. I did both German and Geography at GCSE and scored the same in both.

For German it required alot of more proactive work to go and work on your speaking skills, learn new vocab, write random things in German to get a hold of the grammar. The more you practice and the more willing you are to practice the better you will be. In terms of easiness, I definitely think it is easy to understand German if you just want to pass a GCSE in it but the more you practice the easier it gets.

For Geography it is easy if you find it interesting. I loved going to Geography lessons because everything just made so much sense and it leaves you in awe of the things that happen around you. For reference it is usually split up into Physical geography (landscapes, geology, natural disasters etc) and you have to usually learn some case studies on that and human geography (demographics etc). Extra details depend on your exam board.

I would say it is difficult to compare the two, one is a language and one is a humanity - both are hard in different ways and easy in some respects. German requires extra effort by you to learn new things, Geography is easy content is just A LOT to learn- this was one of the subjects I had to spend the most time revising for. I hope this helps and if not ask your teachers to get a GCSE student who did both to talk to you?
