Im new to thestudentroom so I'm not sure if i posted in the right section... Either way i was wondering if anyone could tell me whether taking sociology as an A level (without having taken it for GCSE) would be a good thing or a bad thing? I would be taking it instead of history and would like to know the pros and cons??? PLEASE help me choose between the two subjects.

I don't do Sociology at A-level or GCSE, but Sociology is a very rare GCSE in comparison to the A-level. At my sixth form, Sociology is offered at A-level but our school doesn't offer it at GCSE, so every student who takes Sociology now came into it new. The syllabus is designed to allow students to come into the subject without any previous Sociological knowledge, so you should be fine on that count.

My 6th form was tiny and didn't offer sociology so I don't know much about it but I would say History is a lot harder, but don't let that stop you if you love it.

I'd rather take History than Sociology, I done both for GCSE and Sociology was a complete bore. History will so much more interesting at AS-Level than sociology (at my college anyway)
