I'm doing Sociology and Psychology and they are both a subject that you can get A/A*. Law is much harder.

I've done Law AS, Sociology AS and I did Psych AS for 2 months before dropping.

Law is fairly hard to do well in, even at AS Level. There are a LOT of case studies to remember and just a lot of content + definitions themselves to study. You will need to be passionate and revise hard to get through the course.

Psych, it was okay but fairly dull. I've seen some people on here say that it gets harder at A2 a lot but I can't vouch for that.

Sociology AS is relatively easy to do well in - I did next to no revision for both my exams but managed to fluke an A cause I found a lot of it common sense (this doesn't mean you necessarily will though!) - but it gets much, much more difficult at A2 level.

Ultimately go for the one that interests you the most as you'll find it easier to navigate through that.

Based on http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...580-from-2015/ > assessment materials, it looks like the topics you study would be slightly different to AQAs.

Someone who does OCR Sociology (atm) might be able to advise you better
