UPDATED to align with the ‘Overview of updates and clarifications for the social and cultural anthropology guide’ published by the IB in November 2019!
Written and reviewed by experienced teachers and examiners with an in-depth understanding of teaching and assessments for the IB social and cultural anthropology course.
This new TestPrep book helps students to familiarise themselves with the SOCANTH exam. It provides information about the approach of the papers and the types of exam questions they will come across. Students can practice answering the questions by writing directly into the book, just like they do in the exam. And, as they work through, there are strategies, hints and support for answering the questions PLUS fully worked solutions at the end.
From some excellent unseen text examples for Paper 1 to invaluable advice from the experts on how to tackle Paper 2, this book provides essential exam practice support for students revising for their social and cultural anthropology exam.
- understand what to expect from the SOCANTH exam papers – with a breakdown of the format of Paper 1 and Paper 2, the key concepts, the assessment objectives, and the six, BIG anthropological questions
- see example answers to Paper 1 and Paper 2-style questions – with brand new, unseen texts, sample answers to exam-style questions and answer analysis from the point of view of an examiner
- test themselves – with two complete sets of exam-style social and cultural anthropology practice papers (the first set includes loads of additional tips, examiner commentary and support to guide students to achieve high marks; the second set is designed so students can have a go at it themselves!)
- check answers – with fully-worked solutions in the back of the book.
This book is designed to be used throughout the last year of the Diploma Programme.
