    I've done law personally although I didn't find it that hard mostly because I had a top teacher who gave so many resources. There is alot to learn however so if you have a good memory then its not too complex. As for psychology apparently there is also alot to learn. Biology tough subject obviously and sociology I haven't a clue. If you have any questions on law a level feel free to ask.

    Biology is great, it's so enjoyable as it's just so interesting! Definitely better at A level than GCSE There's a fair bit to memorise but put the effort in and you'll be fine!

    Psychology is a lot of work, people go in thinking it will be a doddle (because it's considered a 'soft subject') and end up failing the January exam. I'm not sure about the others, but with psychology, go in with a good work ethic (you should do it with all your A levels) and prepare to remember a lot of case studies. But it's a really great and rewarding A level, I really enjoyed AS, so I'm sure you will too!

    I can only speak for Biology
    Some aspects of it are really interesting, although the key to success is a very good memory, which kinds of puts me off a bit as you don't really engage into the subject. I also think it depends on your teachers a lot, I've got two teachers, one which I absolutely hate and the other one is such a good teacher, that I remember most stuff from lessons, so they cancel out and somehow I can manage. It's the easiest out of all sciences as mostly it only requires memorisation, but on the other, much more interesting side there is quite a lot experiments included!

    We've been told at our school that only take law if we're not going to do a degree in it (which sounds strange) as universities don't like it because you can't apply the knowledge learnt at a level during the degree. I haven't looked into law neither am I interested in law, this is just what we were told.
