AQA AS Sociology Topics Paper 1 2022!!!

Hey! I was wondering what topics came up this year for the AQA AS Sociology Paper 1?? Pls it would be much appreciated :smile:
i believe the 30 marker was on how policies have impacted achievement, so im guessing marketisation and policies that have helped to promote achievement.
i also believe that there was a 10 marker on gender, and then the 20 marker was on non participant observations from what i heard buzzing around school today.



hopefully the a level question is similar on monday... if the 30 marker is on globalisation i will be walking straight out of the exam :biggrin:

Hey, I sat the AS paper on Tuesday, the first two marker was to define comprehensive (or something close to that), there was another two marker but I can't remember the question, sorry 🥲. The six marker asked to briefly explain 3 criticisms of labelling theory. The 10 marker asked how changes in the labour market affected gender achievement. The education 20 marker asked to evaluate government policies and how they caused inequality and the methods in context 20 marker was about covert participant observation and how it could be used to study gendered behaviour.
I hope I could help 🙂
