    That's really a matter of opinion and very much depends on which topics you're strongest at.

    Unit 5 is the longer exam which includes the 25 mark essay question (25% of the total marks for the paper) which links to all four units- AS included- so if you're not so good with essays then arguably unit 4 would be the easier exam to get an A in.

    A lot of people seem to find the content in unit 5 more challenging as well, but like I said, it depends on the person really.

    Personally to me they seem to be exactly the same, except different topics. It generally depends on your preference: I'm doing better at unit 5 as its far more interesting.

    I'm finding unit 5 more interesting so far but I couldn't really say which one I'm doing better in.
