Sociology is good, but I'm doing 3 subjects and it is my least favourite.

I really want a B
in my own time tremendously extensively over the past 5 years, as well as the anthropology of religion in a far more light-weight sense. The sociology of the family was quite boring for me. I mean, I already realised that there was an "iceberg" of domestic violence statistics and that lots of people dislike the non-nuclear families and that non-nuclear families are generally inferior in terms of statistics - poorer, less educated, more prone to commit crime and so on. I just found the "family" topic extremely obvious and full of truisms. This was then not aided by the fact that when doing family we spent half of our sociology classes studying statistical methods too, which obviously is even more boring. that said, the methods classes tie in a lot with the epistemology and the analytic vs continental philosophy debates we have at university when studying philosophy, as well as a lot of my philosophy of science classes, so it's much appreciated nonetheless.
The hardest thing about the exams is not the memorising as such; you've already been memorising **** for years, the tough bit is writing it all down in a proper, succinct and ordered manner in the short amount of time you're given in the exam. Fortunately because I did philosophy at A-level too I was able to write extremely fast. Extremely fast, as in 12 pages an hour.
