Sociology Levels:

Find qualifications and resources

WJEC provides, and will continue to provide, GCE Sociology qualifications which meet the needs of teachers and the requirements of regulators in both England and Wales.

The Principal Examiners' report, providing feedback on the winter 2014 series of examinations, is now available. Centres are advised to read the report carefully as it provides helpful observations and commentary on the work produced for this series and can assist teachers in preparing their students for the next series of examinations.
