What is a level criminology like?Watch
Its not an A level. Its a weird Level 3 thing that the Welsh exam board invented. Its all about 'True Crime' - the type of salacious nonsense you see on the front page of the tabloids and has no real academic content. Many Universities dont like it. If you have dreams of doing Law at Uni, then def do not take it!
1 Changing Awareness of Crime - Internal Assessment
2 Criminological Theories - External Assessment
3 Crime Scene to Courtroom - Internal Assessment

Both 2 & 4 have a 90-minute exam.
The specification is here: https://www.wjec.co.uk/media/21xjkr2...03-06-2020.pdf. There is more of an emphasis on coursework and it makes up about 50% of the qualification.
