    I don't know which one to pick because
    1)I enjoy both of them
    2)i get the same levels in both of them

    And now I am stuck between these two subjects.Because the examboards and the levels have changed I don't know which one to pick!Both of them are the AQA examboard.

    I'd pick Business Studies as it's more useful in real life, but then I'm an atheist so I regard the other choice as a different kind of B.S

    Personally, I would say pick R.E; I never paid attention in any majority of the lessons however, I still managed to get an A*
    If you're a Christian (or whatever course you will be studying), and you are studying Christianity, It would be easier for you to understand some aspects quicker than others.

    But the thing is the exams just got harder and we're being levelled from 1-9 instead of A*-U......9 being the highest.

    It was a Mock Exam so I don't know If I will pull it off in a few months.

    I am a Christian (Argue with me via PM's if you must), and we are looking at Christianity and Christianity Ethics.
    Some sections talk about what goes on in a Catholic Church, so since I have had personal experience I can dictate about that whilst using technical words which you pick up.

    Overall, there is a fair amount to remember, but not too much for 2 Topics (this is my personal experience). Over 2 books, It covers 300 or so pages, but it is not hard at all. You will do well if you end up picking R.E

    All the best
