Should I do
1) biology chemistry history
2) biology chemistry sociology

I did sociology at gcse and got a 9 and history got an 8 enjoyed history more but everyone says it’s too much content and hard to manage so now I’m not sure about it.

I know sociology has a lot of content as well but I’ve been told it’s more manageable??

As someone who has done both history and sociology ( achieved higher in history ) I recommend NOT to take history.

I received a 9 in GCSE history but A level it is completely different and the content is very heavy and on top you will have to do coursework on a whole other topic and the coursework is literally dreadful.

I recommend taking sociology instead, the subject actually opens your eyes about the world, the content is heavy but not as heavy as history.

For my a level history I had to do Stuart’s, Nazi Germany and for my coursework my sixth form forced us to do imperialism in South America.

For my CAG I got a B in history and C in sociology. However I retook in autumn and received an A in my history and B in my sociology.
