Students are required to sit three compulsory units in order to achieve the A level qualification. 50% of the content for the full A level qualification will be covered in the AS (reformed) course. The topics to be covered will be based on demand on a first come first served basis. Sufficient material will be covered in the revision course while taking into account the needs of individual students.

Attention will be focused on the key assessment objectives of the examination and students will be helped to develop both their understanding of the key sociological issues and their examination technique. The topics for revision are listed below.

Beliefs in Society

The study of ideology, science and religion, the relationship between social change and social stability, and religious beliefs, practices and organisations, including cults, sects, denominations, churches and New Age movements. The relationship between different social groups and religious beliefs and practices.

N.B. We will be focusing on these topics only.
