Found it pretty mundane and boring. Piss easy though. Got near full marks in the exams. I got a B in sociology but I found it more interesting. So if you want an easy subject then do RE. If you want interesting then do sociology. If you can, do both

Depends on what is taught in the R.E course I think.

I went to a Catholic school, so R.E was compulsory. We were taught Christianity and Islam, and I actually preferred the Islam section over the Christianity secton because it was more straight forward. I never really enjoyed it on the whole - but this is mostly because of being forced into the subject and that I prefer the sciences.

I found it pretty interesting to learn about all the mainstream faiths even though I personally didn't believe in them. At first I only took RE as a standard grade choice so I would get a free period but I ended up enjoying it and took it as a higher the following academic year.

I don't take R.E but I do take Sociology and it is very interesting, especially if you get a teacher who allows you to have debates in class after you learn theories
It can get pretty repetitive though and despite what other people might say, I found it quite challenging (especially because the mark schemes are INCREDIBLY vague)

If you want an interesting subject, take Sociology

GCSE
Avoid GCSE RE, it's easy but it's boring as hell.

Although Philosophy A level is really interesting, so you might want to keep that in mind (my school wanted people to have a B in RE to do Philosophy even though the skills learned in RE weren't really relevant...but then it was compulsory in my school...uh...hm)

I did it for GCSE, and I enjoyed it, as I love to learn about different religions, because it helps me to be more tolerant, and understanding, and I just love to learn about them, and I respect every religion, and their beliefs.

I took both RE ( went to a faith school so had to and studied OCR RE B Christianity) and I also took Sociology(AQA). Personally, I thrived in sociology compared to RE. I was pulling A*'s consistently compared to B/A in RE.

In general, I think that if you enjoy watching the news and reading about current events you'd enjoy sociology because you'd find most of it to be common sense.

If you enjoy debates around belief in God and whether or not something is viewed good or bad according to the Bible (e.g arguments on homosexuality : whether or not a Christian should accept it?) then you'd enjoy R.S because that's what the majority (well at least my spec ) of it is.
