Good Day

I'd like to know if Sociology and Business Studies are at the same level in terms of respected/hard soft subjects

my goal is to have the equivalent to a high school degree and then find any office job, by having 3 A levels which now are:
* Psychology A level
* English as a second Language A level
* Business Studies A level
and i'v done IGCSE Business Studies

obviously when it comes to office employment Business Studies A level is favorable, however i'd like to know if Sociology rather then Business Studies is a better choice in terms of (triple A level for high school completion) because i need to apply my 3 A levels to a world education services, to assess them if its equivalent to a high school degree

I did sociology A level and a psychology degree with sociology minor, I love them both. I'd choose sociology over business studies and think it complements psychology well.
I think the perspectives from both are useful in employment and personal life.
Being knowledgeable in sociology has helped me gain internships, so I think it'll be useful when finding full time employment.

Imo, sociology is more of a hard subject, but I think there'll be people who think the other way.
I did business studies at school, it was interesting but I've never used any of my knowledge of it since.
