I would recommend Sociology but not for the reasons you want. I would recommend Sociology because it is a good gateway into a number of disciplines mostly in the social sciences but also for subjects like History. I had to learn a lot of sociology in my free time at university because I didn't study it before I studied History at degree level and not only did Weber, Foucault etc show up a lot, but I had Carr on my case banging on about the vital link between the two subjects!

I do both at A-level and would definitely recommend sociology over psychology. I'm saying this as I'm in my 2nd year and memory wise learning sociology is way easier than psychology, there are a lot more theories/theorists, but less topics. I'm not sure if this makes sense but with psychology there are lots of different topics and different experiments which can become confusing to learn. From experience I'd say I remember more of sociology than Psychology and in terms of the exams your memory is whats going to help you. Also sociology is a lot more common sense and you see it in day to day life, whereas psychology is more of learning new content, processes, structures etc which can be a bit hard. Some people do find sociology boring so go with what you personally prefer but a lot of the content really is common sense its just working on structuring your answers and how to word it right, so be prepared for the essays too.

I do both they both have soooooo much content.I wouldn’t say one is “easier”.But sociology is better in terms of the content as it is much simpler.Even thought there is more.But would say exam wise they’re both as hard both essay subjects.
