    Hi guys !

    Which one of the subjects it easier / can learn quickly IGCSE sociology or history?

    Sociology is definitely easier

    I would definitley not recommend taking history if you are a poor essay writer and also lots of memorising.I regret doing it.

    Well tbh both history and sociology GCSE require you to have good memorising skills. Although some may say sociology is more of a common sense exam, it is definitely hard, as it requires you to know a wide range of key terms where you are able to define them. Also in sociology you have extremely less time, but you may have to answer long 12 marker questions (this may be different because of the different board you are doing)
