“One of my best decisions was choosing Sociology as one of my A Levels. I had never studied sociology before DSFC but I am happy to say I haven’t looked back since! The Year 12 topics have proven to be extremely captivating: I particularly enjoyed learning about different perspectives within society and the influence they have on different matters. I have also found myself engrossed in the topic of education as it gives the opportunity for interesting discussions about your own experiences and the experiences of those around you. The best advice I could give to those starting Year 12 is to do your best to stick to deadlines. It will be extremely beneficial in the long run and make the workload much easier. Overall, I have found A Level Sociology to be an extremely rewarding and insightful subject which has made my Sixth Form experience very enjoyable.”
