BSA Teaching Group National A-Level Sociology Competition for Students!
If you are aged 16-19 and would like to take part in a project which potentially can be included as part of your course work, you could win yourself a fabulous Apple iPad Mini as well as £250 for your school!
We invite you to conduct and submit research on the following: 'what are the causes of social consensus and conflict in society today?'
What are you interested in? How does this relate to the above and use sociology to answer the question as part of a research project.
Entries are expected to refer to results obtained from their own primary method of research using a suitable sample. This could be an observation, an interview or a questionnaire based study. All research carried out for this competition has to abide the ethical guidelines of research, as stated in the BSA's Statement of Ethical Practice. If you have any questions regarding the competition criteria, please contact: Claire Simmons.
Our A-Level Competition is open to anyone currently studying at A-level, A/S level, Scottish Higher Level or equivalent post-16 qualification in Sociology and we encourage you to be as creative as possible with your answers! The closing date for entries is Friday, 9 December 2016.
