OCR have decided to move the pre-release date for the Stimulus Material for unit B673 Applying Sociological Research forward to the beginning of the school year (i.e. 1st September). This becomes effective from the June 2014 material, which is now available below under ‘pre-release materials’.
The revised specification now includes details of pre-release topics for 2016 and 2017. Please see Section 2.3 Unit B673 – Applying Sociological Research Techniques. You can download the latest version below.
Ofqual previously confirmed changes to be made to all GCSEs offered by all awarding bodies in England for teaching from September 2012. We are currently removing outdated specifications from the OCR website.
All teachers delivering OCR GCSEs should now be using the specifications marked as ‘from 2012’ after the subject e.g. for GCSE ‘Computing – J275 (from 2012)’.
Note: Past papers, mark schemes and examiner reports for outdated specifications are still available on the 'from 2012' version of the qualification and our past papers material finder.
New introductory topics have been added, such as the sociology of youth, to help make the subject more enjoyable to teach and study.
