    Hello.

    Both History and Geography are very good optional subjects and have produced very high marks in past.

    No prior educational background is required to prepare Geography for Civil Service Examination. the syllabus is well defined and quality books and study material is available in plenty.
    While making decision about optional subject, one should not look at these factors like marks fetching, high scoring, and concise syllabus etc. Same goes for history also.

    One should look at the optional subject with whom a reasonably good attempt can be put in. in new format for Main Examination, as such the optional subjects have lost sheen and optional subject decision should better be based upon factors like interest, aptitude, past acquaintance with subject etc.

    If you take "History and Geography" as your optional that will also contributes in GS paper. So, it's a quite good combination.
