hey!! i’m in year 13 and currently finalising what i want to do for uni so i can write my personal statement - i’m torn between talking politics and taking sociology at uni - i think i would prefer the course content of politics and i like the idea of it being more academically challenging, but i am currently predicted a*ab, meaning i have way more of a likelihood to get into top unis if i apply for sociology compared to if i applied for politics i believe, because the entry requirements tend to be lower with higher acceptance rates. i’ve also looked at combined politics and sociology degrees but i’m worried about jobs afterwards because of it being too broad, i’ve also considered social sciences at places like kings. if anyone has any advice about either degree please let me know because i’m currently so torn!!

Hey! I'm currently in my second year doing a degree in Social and Political Sciences (SPS) at York and I absolutely love my degree. Originally, I intended to study History and Politics but changed my mind. SPS is a very broad degree at York but at the same time, it's definitely academically stimulating and graduates of SPS have either gone onto further study or straight into the job market working for various companies in different sectors. Combined politics and sociology sounds like a good option for you if you're torn between the two subjects and you can always transfer over to a similar course if things don't work out. A word of caution on that, you'll have to liaise with the subject department and go from there. Hope this helps!
