    Hi, not sure which to go for.
    Criminology sounds more interesting, but Law is a BTEC so less work and it's coursework too. Obviously the least dominant out of two.

    Current Selection:
    English Lit and Lang
    Business A-Level
    Sociology A-Level

    Any past experiences or thoughts?

    If you do AQA sociology, then criminology would go really well as there is a crime and deviance unit at A2

    Yes, it is AQA. My only concern is there being quite a few intensive options that I've chosen that choosing Criminology is adding to as opposed to Law.

    I’d say it mostly depends on what you want to do in the future - I have heard from friends who take BTEC subjects and alevels that their BTEC subject actually has the biggest workload but my school doesn’t offer Law so I’m not too sure

    Interesting. Supposedly it would be a job that mixes as many of what I've chosen as A-Levels as possible (not sure yet!).

    Is your sixth form offering induction days? Maybe see if they have taster sessions for the subjects you are looking at
