Geography as well as Political Science and International Relations are really good optional subjects.
In Hindi medium where candidates have limited choices due to non-availability of reference books and study material, you have chosen such subjects where there are good books, study material as well as quality guidance is available for both the subjects.
As far as syllabus length is concerned, it doesn’t matter much as you have to be acquainted with both these as Geography as well as Polity are important constituents of General Studies. Moreover, it is matter of interest in the subject; if you like a subject lengthy syllabus will look manageable and if you don’t develop interest in something, it would be really difficult to carry on with it.
Scoring marks depends on your answers and presentation; candidates score good marks in both these subjects.
If you feel comfortable with English, it is fine otherwise; in Hindi Medium also you can justify your decision and can achieve success.
