The questions that we will consider in the first term are:
The A level course is entirely exam based and there will be an internal exam at the end of year 1 and and external exam for all units at the end of year 2.
There are minimal extra costs involved in this course. However we visit a local museum during the Beliefs in Society unit and there is also the opportunity to purchase additional textbooks and journals.
Students with Sociology A-Level are accepted onto a range of university degrees courses, from Nursing and Social Work to Journalism and Social Sciences. One of our past students is currently doing an Architecture degree at Manchester University! Sociology is a good course for progression into Public Services like the Police as the study of Crime & Deviance, for example, fosters a good understanding of the workings of wider society.
