Learning outcomes

SESSION PROGRAMME / OUTLINE

Session 1: The Little Things Make A Big Difference.
10:30-11:10
In this session, we will look back at the 2017 exams including the questions and topics which caused the most problems. We will then look at how to maximise marks on the 4-mark and 6-mark questions and examine how to approach the ‘Items’, in a sociological way.

Session 2: Top Tens.
11:10-12:00
In session two, we will focus on everyone’s favourite: the 10-mark question. Students will practice how to find and develop hooks in the Apply and Analyse questions; they will be introduced to the sociology sandwich (a paragraph-writing technique) and they will consider how to push their answers into the top mark band, through effective analysis.

Session 3: Essays REALLY REALLY Matter.
12:15-13:15
So many of the marks across the A Level papers come from the 20 and 30 mark essays, so good essay technique is critical. This session will hone students’ skills in decoding the question, planning their answers, effective evaluation and how to write winning introductions and conclusions in the 20 and 30 mark essays.

Session 4: Theory & Methods Applied!
14:15-15:15
In the afternoon session, we will take a whistle-stop tour through a wide range of content through the focus of Theory and Methods, including crucial insights into how examiners approach Methods in Context answers. Students will also practice applying their knowledge of theory to a range of A Level sociology topics.
