AQA Sociology Watch
At my college, since September we have been doing Module 3 - Theory and Methods, and we've had the exam for that today.
I know that the other topics we are going to be doing are Families and Households, and Wealth, Poverty and Welfare. However, I've just been looking at the spec. on the AQA site it lists other topics e.g. Work and Leisure, Education etc. Are we supposed to study ALL of these so that we can choose a question in the exam, or do most centres just concentrate on one topic for each module? If they're only going to teach us one topic for each module then I'll feel that I'm missing out. Plus, 6 months seems a long time to cover just 2 topics. It's been bad enough doing Theory and Methods for 4 months!
you only do 2 topics...
for example, last year (AS) i did Families and households...
This year im doing religion and and Crime and divenance..
FAamilies is a really good topic..
Did you find Theory and Methods last year, too? And I hear there's more of it in the A2 course . . .
What other topic did you do besides Family & Households?
Religion sounds interesting.
Have you had an A2 exam today for Sociology?
I'm not impressed by the teachers I have at the moment, otherwise I think I would enjoy the subject more.
I expect it is very different from Economics. Economics would look very good and swotty, compared to Sociology which is seen as a soft subject. I suppose it depends on what sort of subjects you're into!
i find Sociology really interstering...
the topics at AS i did where:
-Families and household
at A2 im studying:
-Crime and Diveance
in terms on sociology being a
Its great for looking for a job in the police, fire services, doctors etc..
there is loads of jobs which like having a Sociology degree..
Im studying it because ive been accepted into a Policing degree at Thanet Universty (hence i wanna be a policeman)... My AS sociology grade got me in where as economics wouldnt have!
it is all personal to what you want to do... there are easier A levels to do thou
Family is quite an interesting topic...explained a few things about mine anyway! I got 103/105 for that paper at AS, which I was quite pleased about.
Has anyone done their AQA religion exam? It was ok, though the question about why young people participated less in religion wasn't something I had previously considered. The secularisation essay question (no.6) was fine though.
yer. i do History and Business so Sociology fits in quite well...
hopefully i did okish
i noticed you said you did families and education topics and doing religion and crime for A2?
im doing the same...so wondering what you did for AS coursework and what you are doing for A2 coursework now?
also, you doing history? me too...what are you doing for your personal project HA2 thing?
for history, my A2 coursework question is:
"To what extent was propaganda the most important factor in Hilter`s consolidation of Power in Germany, 1933 - 1945?"
For sociology, i cant remember my AS title, but i got a B, for my A2 i am doing:
"Boys demand more time with the teacher in the classroom, thus disadvantaging females educational acievement"
