I'm basically in quite a difficult situation.
I am currently doing A-levels in Chemistry, Biology and French (doing all 3 in just one year). I have applied for medicine and have only just realised I need a 4th additional AS grade at grade B or above.
Do you think it's possible to take AS sociology and study it alongside all my other more important A2 subjects and still get a B in it?
jesus!, thats alot but not impossible get your head down after this thread your doing a full a level or just A2 modules?! and sociology is a piece of pie.
Yes, definitely! Sociology is easy... if you have good essay writing skills and just remember loads of names and studies it is very easy to do well!
you have a lot to learn in sociology to be fair. so many names.
yeh youll be ok, but saying that learn sociology make posters etc youll be fine its prity easy and just give your opinion. how old are you by the way?
I did a one year A level in sociology, with no revision, crap coursework and still got a C. It's more than possible.
Definitely, a lot of Sociology is based on common knowledge, I think. I didn't revise for an A2 Sociology paper on Religion and got an A. =) -- I'm not usually a high achiever, by the way.
I think you could do it!
Just got to get a lot of questions done in the new exam, and only given an hour to do it.
Most people end up rushing.
Hey, to be honest with you, i chose to do the subject because friends told me it was easy, and i needed an extra A Level at grade A so i could apply for medicine too, i personally hated the subject so couldnt revise for the modules until the day before. What i did was get as much resources and notes for the modules and spend like 12 hours on each module compiling important stuff relevant to the module and making some condensed notes. Believe it or not but i had each module on 4 sides on average. I would wait for the day before and just memorise the condensed notes. You also need the technique to write good essays so if your already good at that then you will have no problem, as I never practiced my technique or did any past papers because I was very confident with my essay writing skills. I recieved an A in every module for sociology and some were full UMS. I would take my advice if you have the essay writing skills and can work under pressure. Many people at my school did the same, everybody got a B or higher at AS and A2.
Hope the advice helps.
