The A-Level Sociology exam dates for spring/ summer 2023 are:
- Monday 22nd May: Education with Theory and Methods (morning)
- Friday 9th June: Topics in Sociology (morning)
- Wednesday 14th June: Crime and Deviance with Theory and Methods (afternoon).
To make it easier on the head I’ve put these dates into calendar form:
So as of today, Wednesday 3rd of May the first exam is not that far away, so students should be revising in full force RIGHT NOW!
Of course the downer for the first exam is you need to revise both the entire education topic and the entirety of theory and methods!
You’ve then got a nice 2 and a half week break until topics, which is usually families and religion for most centres, but topics will vary depending on what you’ve been taught.
And then a reasonable five days until the final exam!
Overall, not a bad spread of time between exams.
Do double check the above dates using the The AQA Timetable, don’t rely on me, always double and treble check these things for yourself, you as a student are responsible, after all!
Good luck to anyone sitting these exams, and don’t be gutted when you get worse results than students did during lockdown: this is probably going to be the year when the exam boards adjust marks back down so they are much closer to what they were in 2019, to try and wash clear the memory of the suspiciously high teacher predicted grades awarded in 2020 and 2021, and the ‘half way house’ results from 2022 which I think were placed at half way between 2019 and 2021 in order to make those two years of Teacher Results seem more credible.
At the end of the day it doesn’t matter too much if your cohort gets worse results than the lockdown students, you are mostly going to be competing against your cohort for university places!
