    I'm currently doing A2 sociology and I think it's a real eye opener. You learn about different perspectives views on many factors that shape the society, eg. education, family, gender roles etc. And it's really not a complicated subject, my revision consisted of just reading the whole book hours before the exam and ended up with an A. If you enjoy philosophy, you will like sociology
    oh okay thankyou

    thankyou sooooo much.... erm could u message me like one of you past work so i can see what its like that would be sooo helpful
    ok, so i'm attaching some files (hopefully they will load)

    two are from last year; one about social policies affects on the family, and one about gender and education. The other two are from this year (A2) one about beliefs in society - and the other about crime and deviance.

    Most of my better essays were hand written, these are the only ones i could find on my laptop but they still show you the structure and you can get an idea of certain topics i guess, but there is a lot more in it that what is mentioned in the essays they are simly just snippits of topics.

    I should have some of my revision sources linked as well. E.g. i made powerpoints last year for all of my subjects - i've uploaded just two of them one on couples, and one on childhood i've also included a powerpoint i never got round to finishing which just has some past 24 mark essay questions on (from the family and households unit) - just to try show you a range of different things we look at. Hope you find some interesting things- but remember it's a lot more interesting than maybe what i make out, my revision powerpoints are pretty boring but i had a lot to get through haha!

    In the first year i did; Couples, childhood, demographics, social policy, Education, research methods, diversity, etc there was a range of interesting things. There is now a new spec due to the AS/A2 situation but i've just read through it and it's pretty much all the same topics in a different order so these should be useful - however, i think its up to the college/department you go to as to whether you do families and households - or a different unit e.g. health, culture and welfare, identity but family is the one i did

    HI,
    Im picking my alevels at the moment and I became interested in sociolgy... but i dont know much about it cause i didnt do it for GCSEs and its quite new to me. If someone could tell me... it would be a great help
    Hi, im currently in year 13 and after I sat my exams I achieved a B at AS. I also didn't study sociology for GCSEs and I even did better than some people who got A grades in GCSE. Honestly, if you put in the work it will be fine, plus they teach it from scrath and therefore you'll all be in the same boat, regardless of doing it for GCSE or not.

    Hope I helped
