I'm choosing my GCSEs and I can't choose between sociology or business studies.I have only today and tomorrow to think about which one to choose. I'm really stressing out about it thinking which one is fun to learn while being useful. I feel like I'll find Sociology interesting while being fun but on the other hand i feel business studies will be interesting and useful. Can anyone please also tell me their experiences with these subjects. Thank you in advance!
I don't do sociology but I do business studies. I am about to start year 11 in September but I would 100% recommend taking business studies! It is one of my favourite subjects and my best. I didn't start it until November because I changed from Geography and my results are top of the year in a grammar school- clearly it can't be that hard if I managed to catch up. Business studies is not particularly hard so you can expect a good grade if you work. I find not much work is needed and I barely ever revise and I think it is a very useful GCSE to have because it really links in knowledge and the real world. I would definitely take it if I were you because it opens up a lot of doors and is extremely enjoyable
I found sociology dull and don't plan on taking it beyond GCSE. AQA papers were kinda bull and by the sounds of it, it's only going to get worse in the exam department. I think you should go for business.
Thank you everyone! I changed my option from German to business studies so I hope someone drops out (it's full for now). In year 10 I'll know if someone drops out so I can take it. I think I'll find it interesting and fun so I'll give it a shot.
I have the same problem how have you found business ? What’s it like
