Which subject would be easier? Less content heavy? Better timings on exams? Any other info would be helpful. For a level law exam board will most likely be OCR and for A level sociology most likely AQA

Is that speaking from experience? Do you do both? If you do could you let me know what exam boards you do.

I'm doing both A-level Law and Sociology so I can speak from experience. To me, they're both difficult but so is every other qualification out there and of course, some may find certain ones easier than others but overall, they're challenging because they're meant to be. Both subjects require memorisation and understanding of the topics and you'll be tested on this in the exam. I find it easy to apply some of the knowledge from A-level law to sociology and sometimes, you can apply it the other way around. I find Sociology equally, if not more, content-heavy in comparison to A-level Law.

Do not pick a subject just because you think it'll be easier. The thing with A-levels is that you need to have an appreciation for that subject otherwise, it'll be very hard for you to find the motivation to revise and succeed in your exams.
