If you look at the AQA website, the specification lists all the exams, all of which are written, so yes, there is a lot of writing involved.

But if you're really interested in it and/or it is relevant to what you want to do later in life, I would say go for it.

I only take written based subjects and this is one that I take. There are a lot of essays but I don't think that should put you off.

The longest essay at AS is 12 marks, and at A level I think 16 (correct me if I'm wrong anyone - I'm still on AS!), so not as lengthy as others (eg. Sociology, English -subjects I also do) but it does involve some essay writing and each paper (2 at AS, 3 at A Level) is 1hr 30 of writing.
