If I were you, I'd probably ask current students at your school doing these subjects what they think. If you can't find anyone, maybe ask your teachers for this subject on what they recommend.
Assuming you're talking about History: Revolutions, I'd only recommend it if you are willing to learn and write a lot. The exam felt like a phone book, and some of the SACs require a lot of cramming and research.
I'm not sure about geography, but I've heard that it's not too bad in Unit 3/4.

Once again, don't take my word for it. I'd start asking around tomorrow morning for advice from people who've done both.

I did History. If you're good at writing and connecting ideas and enjoy learning insane amounts of content, go for it! It's really interesting... just an awful lot to learn.
I don't know anything about geography.

Hi twinklehello!
Sounds like youíre in a bit of a pickle there, but I hope I can help you out. I did History Revolutions early in year 11, and Iím doing Geography as one of my subjects now in year 12. I love both, I think theyíre very interesting subjects.
Overall, I would recommend doing history early. I found it to have much more content than geo right now, and thereís a bit more skill involved (e.g. you have to write an essay, whilst in geo you donít have to do that). You also have to memorise quotes and statistics in addition to content, and whilst you do need statistics in geography as well, I found that you need more in history to make sure you can cover a range of topics. However, since you're doing history in year 11, you may be able to allocate more time to it, and thus, memorising all the content and evidence may be easier.
On the other hand, I think doing geography early may be a nice start into what a unit 3/4 is like. I find it to be not as content-heavy or strenuous as other subjects, and Iím doing pretty well in it (though this may just be my experience).
Also consider that unless you have another 3/4 subject youíve already decided on, you can do two 3/4s in year 11 at most schools (so you can do both history and geography next year).
Hope this helped and good luck with your subject selection!
