I want to change from biology to an EASIER (i acknowledge it will not be easy) A level to get an A. What I think will be easier is psychology, business, economics and sociology. I can’t do arts/design and hate English. Any suggestions of the A level I should pick?

I feel like with sociology, theres soooo many ways to get marks.

My teacher said you can do a plan for a 30 marker and you can get AO1 marks :eek:
Personally, its a very laidback subject I've never had any struggles, you don't have to be perfect at essay writing you just need to know how to pickup the marks ygm.

I’m assuming this was AS? Is it much harder in A level. Also I’m terrible at English so psychology involve writing about random stuff on random extracts

Definitely go with Religious Studies. Extremely easy as a lot of it is common knowledge. Really interesting as well.

1) memorise the textbook. the content is little (aqa) 1 double page = 1 topic. in AS there's 50 double pages and at A2 there's also around 50. one side of the double page is description of the topic, the other page is evaluation.
2) once u've memorised the textbook, do exam questions and memorise the mark schemes. i didn't see any of the questions until like 2 months before the exams. i'd say spend 3 months on this step if you want to smash your a2 exams and get an a*

to get an A* i wish i memorised the evaluation points earlier, and made sure i knew all the content 2 months before the exam.
