i agree with Justina bio is more respected by universities but you are one who has to go through the course and study for the exams i dropped biology and kept sociology for the the reason that it was easier to get a higher grade with sociology than biology. In addition to it also depends on your desired career path

It depends on what you like, sociology is very debatey and has loads of essays and biology is questions and experiments. I did sociology but dropped it half way through AS as i hated it. And i dont do biology but some of my friends do and they seem to enjoy it :) it just depends on what you prefer to do and how your school teaches.

Depends what you like. As others have said, Sociology involves a lot of debates and is certainly very relevant at the moment, whereas Biology is more question based and incorporates short experiments. You have to choose really which sort of technique you prefer and, more importantly, what interests you more. You sure to do better at the subject if you actually enjoy it!

It depends what you want to do. I'm taking biology because I want to go into sciences but I don't want to do anything concerning sociology.

Also, isn't psychology a mixture between biology and sociology?

I did both at AS level.

Dropped Biology and carried on with Sociology at A2 level.

The reason being is I hated the department. It's all good on the open day when they showed me skulls and teeth and experiments, but they don't show you the week after week sat in a classroom making notes off PPTs and answering questions from textbooks.

It may be different from your college, but literally for every topic we got given a thick booklet and had to fill in gaps from the PowerPoints that were put up. Very mundane.

There's a lot more debate in sociology and it is a very contemporary subject. This led me to pick it in the first place :) It's also weird in that although I didn't do it at GCSE, it's actually my highest grade at A level so far (Very High A).

boilogy  is more easier all you have to do is memorise the work given you dont even have to understand it biut in sociology you have to know absoloutly everything and there are loads of big esssay questioins in the exam
