    I'm sorrry, I didn't do one of these subjects at A Level - but I would say that, firstly, RS can be incredibly interesting, and secondly that it is quite possibly better respected as an A Level than either of the other two. Out of interest, what other A levels are you planning on doing, and what degree?

    Hiya,

    I have an HNC in Social Care which contained modules in Psychology and Sociology but were applied to care settings. I also just completed Higher Psychology (Similar to A level).

    I personally preferred Psychology. It's hard to explain... I really enjoyed getting to know more about the topics we covered (abnormal behaviour, sleep etc). But you would do similar in Sociology as well, going over different approaches.

    All I can suggest is you read over the two topics and see what one you prefer the sound of more. Both are good subjects.

    I did biology, chemistry, maths and RS(philosophy and ethics) last year for AS. Out of all my subjects philosophy and ethics for me was the easiest and most interesting subject i did, its incredibly fascinating and there is a whole module you do in medical ethics which you can tie in to your personal statement if your applying to do something in the medical field. It was so different from all my other subjects, which is why I liked it so much but you had to really think to because some of the theories in philosophy can take a while to get your head around, but its o interesting and I didn't find it particularly difficult. I got an A at AS, I think once you've mastered your essay structure you just need to make a set of notes on each theory using outside reading and using other philosophers views who support and criticize it, and then that's it really. The only difficult thing I think id the timing in the exam and some theories are really weird, so it takes a while to understand. Hope this helps, if you have any more questions let me know.

    You know what, I don't usually say this, but in this case just choose the subject whose material you enjoy most. Perhaps psychology would be most related to your career and degree, but this isn't particularly a reason to choose it. Just go with what you'll like!
