History, although the other half is having a decent writing style so you can actually use the information you know to get marks.
Biology, apparently, requires a lot of memorising, more so than chemistry or physics.

History (as mentioned above), Law is extremely memory based, and obviously, any language will require a significant amount of memorised vocabulary.

i agree that history relies a lot on memory however i think it relies more on essay skills and its not as straight forward as ao1 and then a03 for eval

I did government and politics, psychology, sociology, and English literature. My knowledge of Religious Studies only extends to GCSE, sorry! :sad: Religious Studies relied on the things you mentioned in your first post, so I assume it is the same for A-level Religious Studies.
