Depends which exam board you're on about. I do OCR AS was interesting and much simpler than A2 - the amount of studies we have to learn for A2 is insane! But definitely worth taking as a subject if you're willing to put a lot of work into it.
AQA (I've done AQA at AS) is also very interesting. I'd say it's more interesting than OCR because we got to learn the theory as well as the studies (although in OCR A2 that does change)

Have you got any uni plans?

I've recently begun 6th form and am taking psyco. Honestly at the moment i find it really boring, hard to get my head around and am regretting taking it. However, i have been told that this is because we are doing the worst topic 'Research Methods' first. It is a good course to take if your uni course wants you to take essay based subjects (i want to take history at Oxford and they recommend taling essay based subjects)
