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.
The final assessment opportunity for this qualification (J696) will be June 2018.
Please see the Notice to centres below for further details.
OCR is currently reforming its GCSEs, AS and A Level in line with the government programme of general qualifications. However, we have made the difficult decision not to redevelop GCSE Sociology.
