About this course

The AQA GCSE Sociology Catch Up 2021 course is organised into a series of "Weeks", each of which focuses on a core topic area from year 10 that is likely to underpin student success in summer 2021.

Starting with key content from the Education topic, then Families and finally Research Methods, each week visits an area of year 10 study through sequenced short videos, interactive resources and exam skills practice.

By carefully working through this Catch Up programme, we hope that students will be able to tackle their year 11 work with greater confidence.
