Sociology GCSE

Oxford Home Schooling’s Sociology GCSE course will prepare students to sit the new AQA 8192 specification, which will be examined for the first time in Summer 2019.

The specification is covered in six modules. The student’s knowledge will be reinforced by submitting Tutor-marked Assignments, which are formative assessments to help students understand the level they have reached and the level expected by examiners. There are 7 Tutor-marked Assignments and 2 practice examination papers.

The Six Modules are

  • Module One: The Sociological Approach
  • Module Two: The Family
  • Module Three: Education
  • Module Four: Crime and Deviance
  • Module Five: Stratification
