Year 11 Sociology



Paper 1 – Sociology Component 1



Paper 2 – Sociology Component 2

All students have been provided with a revision guide, which will aid them in the creation of revision resources. Students are encouraged to focus on individual topics during each revision session and ensure their revision is active. This means creating revision resources such as mind maps, flash cards and attempt plenty of exam style questions. Students should then use their revision guide, as well as accessing past papers through the WJEC website to test themselves on the subject they have just revised.

To encourage good revision practice, students have been provided with a homework booklet and mind maps of each topic, which allows them to revise each topic at time. These resources can also be used when completing their essays.  These tasks encourage students to use a range of skills such as condensing their understanding into a small writing space or creating visualisations of their understanding through diagrams and knowledge checks. Students need to find a revision technique that works best for them, they should be encouraged to use these techniques as part of their general revision.

In addition, students are set a weekly exam questions through “Show My Homework”. Students are encouraged to use their revision guides and mind maps pages that might be helpful for them to complete the tasks set.

Revision guides

All students have been loaned a revision guide for use in and out of timetabled lessons. This will need to be returned after the exam.

If your child would like to buy their own their revision guide, they are available for purchase directly on the Illuminate Publishing website or on Amazon.
