A Level

Board AQA

Think about this…

These are the sorts of issues you will be expected to write essays about on the newly restructured Sociology A level course, as well as studying the research methods used by Sociologists, ranging from questionnaires and interviews to ethically questionable undercover filming operations.  Asking the right questions is at least as important as finding the right answers... and is there always a “right” answer anyway?

Where it leads

Sociology A level is recommended for careers such as Nursing, Teaching, Social Work and Police Work, but it also involves current affairs, political opinions and an element of philosophical speculation about human nature – it is one of the broadest A levels you can do and it goes well with almost any subject combination.

"It is a really interesting, fun and enjoyable lesson which all students are respected and treated like individuals.  The teacher truly cares about the success and well-being of the students in his class.  By doing so, all the students feel as if they are really cared about and that they can always talk and confide in the teacher.”  

 Specific grade requirements (standard offer is 5 C / 4 grades)

You will need normal College entry qualifications and will also need to attain 5 or higher in GCSE English Literature or Language and 4 or higher in GCSE Mathematics.
