Peterhead Academy presented 19 students for Higher sociology this year, which makes it one of the leading schools in the subject at this level.

Alex Davidson, who teaches it, said the response was positive. "There was nothing they were unprepared for," he said. "It was a very fair paper."

The section students have to be particularly well prepared for is the compulsory one on the topics of class stratification and education. Since the candidates do not know which of the two they are going to be asked about, they have to be ready to answer a wide range of questions. Another part of the paper covers the sociology of the family and the mass media, but students can choose between the two.
