    Hey guys, please cut the pc and tell which A-Level course is easier:
    Business or Sociology

    If you were going to comment something along the lines of 'No A-Level is easy', 'it's purely a matter of your passion' blah blah - No thank you

    I HATE TO SOUND RUDE BUT I HAVE TO HAND IN MY APPLICATION FORM TOMORROW AND THESE CHOICES DETERMINE MY UNIVERSITY CHOICES AND MY DEGREE DETERMINES MY JOB AND MY JOB DETERMINES THE SIZE OF MY HOUSE, THE LOGO OF MY CAR AND MOST IMPORTANTLY THE QUALITY OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

    Still doesnt change the fact that one subject might be hard for some and easier for others.

    The caps are impressive, but i dont think its my lot in life to be bothered about all those things.

    Go and look at what each course covers by looking at the spec from the exam board websites and just see which one will suit you more, knowing what interests you and what things you find easiest.

    Have fun and if you get it wrong, then theres always next time.

    I would assume Sociology is harder than Buisness Studies but I would recommend doing the subject you are more interested in for obvious reasons.

    It depends where you want to go. You won't get into Oxbridge, Imperial, LSE, UCL or a lot of other top universities for either of those courses with those A-level subjects. If you want to go to a middling university it doesn't matter too much as long as you have maths.

    Ok for comp sci I would recommend maths + futher maths if applying to 'top' unis plus a science (phys,chem,bio) whereas for P&E Maths+ econ + politics
    if you want a general app that you can use for both I would say maths+econ+science, if you want to apply for imperial/lse/ucl/oxbridge for either course then add further maths onto the list

    They're both easy A Levels. If all you take are subjects like those two, there's not much to show off about logo-of-your-car-wise

    Instead of Buisness Studies, why don't you pick Economics?

    I would say Economics as many people find it easier than Buisness and it goes great with the courses you'd like to take at Uni. At my college, the percentage of A* - C is 98%
