    Is that officially true for unis? BS would be the softest choice out of the three?

    Cambridge university for example sees them as limited suitability

    They are all on a equal level for 'least respected', which is backed up by trinity college's a level guide thing ^

    I would say sociology is better out of the three.

    I see BS as the worst one there though imho. I just don't rate it when economics is offered as a subject.

    Depends what you want to study... but if you take it only at AS it won't matter anyway.

    Yes, well. In no way is Trinity College's list the exhaustive one around here. For example - Sheffield also have a list. Sheffield is a brilliant University in my opinion and ranks highly for the OP's interested subject in Politics for example. Yet they also accept ALL of his forth subjects as first subjects. I think it would be poor to use Trinity College's list as the final discourse of A level choices.
    No my point in posting the link was that they all have value but I had to get off of the computer so didn't have time to explain. The op asked which is the least respected and I was posting the link so he could have a look and see that they are all kind of the same level. By limited suitability I meant to say that they are of limited suitability as opposed to only being suitable as a fourth. On another note Sheffield is my insurance so I know that they don't look down on sociology (which I took) for example. I used trinity as an example as it is seen as prestigious (I don't know where the OP intends ton apply to) and because it is the only list that I know of. I never said to take it as gospel.

    I know its 2 yrs later but im choosing my a levels and want to choose between sociology or law. I thought law was harder then sociology. I want to go to oxbridge my other options are biology physics and psychology. Why the downer on law.
