Firstly is it a hard or soft subject? (What do universities think of it)
Is it better than psychology? ( as in easier to get a or a*)
How much is the workload compared to other subjects like psychology or sociology or the sciences
Is it interesting?

It's somewhere in the middle. It's not facilitating, but it's not considered soft. It's considered a good subject for anyone studying the humanities at university. It's considered more highly than sociology and media I would say.
I do it and I would say the workload is moderate. It's probably one of my easier a levels in terms of content, if you love politics you'll probably enjoy the a level. The exam skills are the hard bit, because you get so little time. I wouldn't say it's easy to get an A/A*. It's not easy to get an A/A* in a levels, it's about how much effort you're willing to put in. Again, content is pretty much easy to understand it's the exam that is hard. I would say the workload is about the same for psychology and politics, but that's on my personal experience. My friends get about as much work for psychology as I do for politics. I haven't a clue about sociology, but if you're wondering between sociology and politics - politics is a really good a level. I love it.

Thank you for the advice! Really helped. So what other subjects are you studying at a level?
I hope to take chemistry and biology with gov and oil and psychology and hopefully want to study medicine.

I'm glad! I do History, English Literature, philosophy and EPQ. Nice choices!
