    Have a look at the spec for sociology or RS. Do you know which exam board you are doing for these 2?

    Yes i did and i feel there's quite a bit more things to learn for sociology than RS. I'm going the Cambridge board (cie).
    I'm worried cause my exams are on October and i need to register tomorrow.

    People here at TSR say that religious studies is easiest subject and free A* so I would probably recommend religious studies and I also find it easy.

    Have you spoken to your subject teachers? They should be able to help you more but I suggest you taking a subject which you really want to do and enjoy. But since you haven't done these 2 subjects before, just research as much as you can about what topics you're going to be doing, the type of assessment, grade weightings and career prospects etc. Then choose the one that you would really want to do. Good luck

    I agree with this. The content isn't hard to understand, the questions are straightforward and the mark schemes are usually quite lenient.

    I took RS, not Sociology though so I can't speak for that. RS is so easy, omg if you can write nicely and you are alright at English, it is a guaranteed A or A*. However, for me, it was my first exam so I was super nervous and threw up like 50 times over the weekend and on Monday (the day of the exam) so I'm not too sure if I did well

    Anyway, it is pretty easy, we were gonna do it in Year 10 but dropped out last minute for a number of reasons.
