Hi All, my son is studying for sociology and i cant get my head round the exams and the new specification. it outlines a number of 'optional modules' for AS Level and A level. Does this mean he can choose one single topic from each set of optional topics listed below and study hard for that one topic and leave the rest of the optional topics out of his revision and still do well in the exam? Thanks


AS Level:
3.2.2 Topics in Sociology
3.2.2.1 Culture and Identity
3.2.2.2 Families and Households
3.2.2.3 Health
3.2.2.4 Work, Poverty and Welfare


A-Level:

Option 1:
4.2.1 Culture and Identity
4.2.2 Families and Households
4.2.3 Health
4.2.4 Work, Poverty and Welfare
Option 2
4.2.5 Beliefs in Society
4.2.6 Global Development
4.2.7 The Media
4.2.8 Stratification and Differentiation

Hi there,

No, it doesn't mean that he can choose one himself. The school/college he is at will have chosen them in advance - so for example, my college is doing
4.2.2 Families and Households and 4.2.5 Beliefs in Society along with crime and deviance and education with methods. However, saying that, you will only have to revise those specific areas - so going into the exam, in my case, i do not have to answer the questions on culture, health or globalisation etc.

Hope this helps!
