FAQs for IGCSE Sociology (0495)


Is there a preferred order for teaching IGCSE Sociology?

No, although the order the topics are given in the syllabus is often followed. The Scheme of Work, available to download from School Support Hub, is also written in syllabus topic order.
The order in which the syllabus is taught depends on the individual department or teacher and the preparation of the students in the previous school years.

Can candidates write during the 15 minutes reading time?

The 15 minutes reading time is included in the total amount of time given to the candidates. Candidates can begin writing from the start of the exam, but it is recommended that they read through all of the questions before they start writing.
