Sociology or Psychology??Watch
I've studied sociology at GCSE level but I'm aware it's much more detailed at A-level. As for psychology, I haven't ever studied it but it seems interesting as it's something new.
I'm looking to do a primary school advanced/ degree apprenticeship after sixth form so I'm just wondering which A-level would work better as a third... sociology or psychology.
Any advice would be useful, especially if you've studied these A-levels before.
In terms of actual content, hit the nail on the head. For example, in Sociology you learn about Marxist theory on class inequality in education. Freud in Psyc sounds way too complicated!
Hi. I (was) in Year 13 and took Sociology, Geography and English Lit and many of my friends took both psyc and sociology. They all said Sociology is so much easier because theres a mathematical element to Psyc which makes it tough. They have told me that a level maths/sciences will make psyc easier. On the other hand, sociology is much more essay based. Personally, taking English allowed me to be so much better in sociology as having good essay writing skills is essential for sociology, similar to how maths is essential for psychology.
