Hello, this is the official thread for those in Year 13 who are currently studying A Level Sociology this year. First of all, welcome guys - we are in this together <3! Second, here are a few icebreaker questions:

1) name and where you are from
2) what other subjects you are taking at A Level
3) the grades you are hoping to get at the end of Year 13 :smile:
4) the latest netflix show/movie you've watched
5) your go-to positive/motivational quote or affirmation

No, it's fine.
If it helps others doing CIE then I'm okay with that.

Media Studies is a great subject if you are a creative individual and someone who loves writing essays. You study the history of media from radio, newspapers, magazines and TV while also looking at modern products such as music videos and video games and how the internet has influenced media.

Your final grade is from two written exams and a coursework element where you will create a cross-media product such as a magazine, short film or music video.

Things to be aware of:

Depending on your exam board it may be hard to find revision resources online since there are multiple set products which change every year or two.

If you aren't the best at essay subjects such as English Language or English Literature, you may also struggle with Media Studies since you would also need to analyze quotes, scenes or representation from media alongside theories which you will learn.

Overall it is a fun subject and is not too hard to get a good grade. :smile:

Hey year 12 here i was wondering what are the best resources to use for really understanding sociology (AQA) and how to get better at writing essays because I feel like although i know what to include i think it is very different to knowing how to cohesively put it all together ?
Hello fellow sociologists, what do you recommend as the best way to revise for this subject? (particularly if you do AQA) thanks :smile:

I want to say I love you for writing our course book but simultaneously say I hate you for making my life hard. But hey, at least you didn’t invent mathematics.
