Sociology. History requires a more meticulous and eclectic analysis, whereas in sociology, there is a more familiar method of examniation since it's mainly social relations.

I think sociology is seen as a 'weaker' subject, but I can't really say as I haven't it! I also haven't studied history.

I have however, studied Geography to A-level and whilst they're very different subjects, history and geography are seen as equally respectable subjects. Geography is fairly difficult, but whilst it wouldn't be impossible to self-learn, having a teacher explain key points helps.

Sociology and history are relatively similar in terms of being essay based, but I suppose it's more down to what you are more interested in.
