Hi, I have been given the option to take Sociology GCSE, and I am wondering if it is a good subject and if it is math based?

Sociology is a great GCSE and I really recommend it, it doesn't really have any maths involved and instead allows you to question the entire world around you. Personally, I found it relatively easy and is mainly based on logic and writing essays so it's not that bad: you can also get loads of easy marks as the paper is full of 2 and 4 markers which require little to no explanation. Hope that helps

Hello! I have a 1st BA Hons Sociology degree, it is a really fun subject to study. Typically, you look at different aspects of society such as religion, social class, gender, ethnicity etc, and you apply different perspectives to them such as Marxism, Feminism, and Functionalism. I would say that going forward, if you wanted to carry onto degree level, have an action plan of what career you want to go into and aim for that (social work, teaching etc.)
