GCSE Sociology

Instead of coursework students sit three exams, one in Year 10 and two in Year 11.

These include:

Sociology Basics: An introduction to research methods, culture, socialisation and identity, focussing on Gender Identity.

Research methodology: Answering questions based on a pre-released sociological study.

Culture and Socialisation: An in-depth study of Crime and Deviance, Work and Youth Culture.

Good literacy skills are important as responses vary from one or two words to longer essay style responses.
