I took both psychology and sociology at the beginning of alevels, personally i enjoyed psychology a lot more, but a few of my friends who also did both said sociology was easier which is why they dropped psychology. It really depends on you, why not try both and then drop one?

Psychology (AQA) is split into 3 papers, each paper has 4 sub topics, each sub topic will either have 1x16 mark or 1x8 mark essays. My teacher really prepares us for every type of essay, as long as you know the content psychology essays tend to be easy. Timing for essays in psychology is quite strict but do-able. Psychology is my favourite subject at college, so it's safe to say i find it really enjoyable. It has a real variety of content as there are links to law, sociology and biology (especially the brain) within it, i definitely recommend it.
