This year i'm in yr10 and i'm choosing a new GCSE subject, would sociology or business be better to study as i was told they were both seen as 'soft' subjects.

Unless you need a particular subject for A level (which is unlikely with these two, as I think you can take sociology and business A levels without the GCSEs), just pick whatever you think you'd enjoy most! If you enjoy it you'll do better generally, and at GCSE level it isn't too important which subjects you're actually taking unless it's related to A levels/future career

I'd say business as it gives you an insight into what the scenes are behind the workplace so to speak.

It doesn't really matter at GCSE, although I did sociology and I really enjoyed it! It taught me skills which helped me in all of my other subjects


I can't speak for business studies, although a few of my friends took it and didn't enjoy it. That might just have been the exam board though!

I think sociology unless you are planning on doing buisness A level! I do sociology alevel, and I think it is one of the most interesting subjects ever, despite it's reputation of being a "soft" subject! And I totally wish tha I had done sociology gcse

Business GCSE. Expect an easy A if you have an ounce of common sense.

I don't buy into the whole 'soft subject' thing. My worst GCSEs were in IT and business studies, both considered 'soft' though it does have some relevance in uni applications if you've got 'soft' subjects for A level (but not GCSE AFAIK?).

I'd say to choose business as it gives you more options for future jobs. It's also more interesting in my opinion. However, go with what you enjoy more
