Sociology (4190)

This is our current GCSE specification.
For our new specification see:

GCSE Sociology (8192)

Sociology helps students develop a wide range of knowledge and understanding about society, and how sociologists study and understand its structures, processes and issues. Sociology is exciting, interesting and relevant to students' lives.

The GCSE Full Course (two unit) and Short Course (one unit) specification is fully examined, with no coursework. Students are encouraged to question evidence and issues and develop their critical and evaluation skills. There is a smooth progression from GCSE to A-level Sociology.
