I am currently a year 2 college student and I'm doing Sociology, History and Business and I want to do Law at Uni. However I really do not enjoy Business and was thinking of dropping it and doing government and politics instead (a 2 year course in 1 year) but I'm not too sure if that's the best idea, I really just need some advice. And i was also wondering how are the politics lessons and exams like.( I believe my college does OCR politics).

I haven't done OCR politics but I did Edexcel Politics and Also AQA business.

Honestly I'd stick with business right now cause i'm guessing its the linear curriculum so whatever you got last year doesn't count for the final A2 year. Politics was pretty decent. for Edexcel we did Unit 1 -> Party politics, Pressure groups, Elections and Democracy. Unit 2 -> Constitution, Parliament,Cabinet and Judiciary. Unit 3 -> Idealogies like Socialism,Anarchism, Liberalism and Conservatism. Unit 4 -> Nationalism, Feminism, Multiculturalism and Ecologism.

Here's the specs www.ocr.org.uk/Images/74598-specification.pdf
It doesn't really seem the much off but bare in mind that the AS units require some level of current affairs whether it be in the US, UK or anywhere else in the world and if you pick the US Unit 3 and 4 then you probably need to start learning about the congress,state, bicameralism etc


Protip = stick with business as it is lol

In terms of exams, they mostly start at June, so beginning of june there's the AS ones and the around the 20th theres the A2 ones.

from what I remember it was minute a mark so 80 mins = 80 marks.

Yeah thanks!! I know it would be better to stick with business as it's a subject I already have some knowledge on but I just really dislike the subject which makes it difficult to concentrate and revise, but thanks anyway i'll take it into account.
