Sociology studies the interaction of people
living in the society. How they affect the society and how the society affects
them. It studies the people as a whole and not by individuality. Sociologists
are the people who studies sociology. They analyze and understand the way
people behave in the community and also they find solution to the existing
phenomenon or social problem in the society. Sociologists are important in the
society it is because they make the lives of the people in the community
easier. They solve problems in the community that we find difficult, so it is
appropriate that we must have a reliable sociologist that we can rely on. They
must have all the skills that a good sociologist has. A good sociologist must
be good at reading comprehension, writing, critical thinking, analytical
skills, complex problem solving and communication.

From these past few years I observed that
most of the students enrolled from sociology department hates or does not do
well in Math and English. So maybe in their high school years they are not also
doing well in these subjects. As a social scientist in the future they must
possessed all the skills of a good sociology for them to be able to do their
job productively. English is a subject that can help you develop you reading
comprehension, writing and communication.  Social science also develops your communication
skills. Math develops your complex problem skills and science develops your
critical thinking and analytical skills. If you are not doing well in these
subjects then you probably failed to develop these skills and will give you
difficulties in passing the major subjects.

A graduated student from the sociology
department who doesn’t have yet fully harnessed the skills of a good sociology
is a social problem. Instead in helping and finding solution to existing
problems in the society they give problems instead. It is because what the
society need is a reliable and productive social scientist that can understand
and analyze things and not an ignorant-want- to-be-social-scientist. What I
want to study is that if there is an effect of high school grades of 4th year
AB-Sociology students in Math, English, Science, and Social Science in their
academic performance in their major subjects. And also I want to know why students
who are not good at math and English are enrolled in AB-Sociology when in fact
the students that are need in the sociology department are good at solving and
writing.

In
educational institutions, success is measured by academic performance, or how
well a student meets standards set out by local government and the institution
itself. Although education is not the only road to success in the working
world, much effort is made to identify, evaluate, track and encourage the
progress of students in schools. Parents care about their child’s academic
performance because they believe good academic results will provide more career
choices and job security. Schools, though invested in fostering good academic
habits for the same reason, are also often influenced by concerns about the
school’s reputation and the possibility of monetary aid from government institutions,
which can hinge on the overall academic performance of the school. State and
federal departments of education are charged with improving schools, and so
devise methods of measuring success in order to create plans for improvement. (Melissa.
J. 2017)

From our childhood until our adulthood we are
studying different subject matters. And as our level raises the difficulty of
these subject matters also rises from easy to hard, from simple to complex. We
need to pass those subjects for us to be able to proceeds a higher level. In
college we have what we called majors and minor subjects. A major is a field
where students focus during the course of his/her degree. It is the student’s
main field of specialization during his or her associates or undergraduate studies
which would be in addition to, and may incorporate portions of, a core
curriculum. The core curriculum covers a range of subjects giving the student
or learner a good basis of knowledge and exposure.

In college, students are expected to do well
in their major subjects or be able to master them. Have skills that are essential
in their field and be productive and reliable in their work field. College is
the training ground of their future work. It gives them knowledge of what will
they be and what will they do in the future.

The student’s grade in their major subject
should be high because it can impact to their future career. Companies like
workers who are outstanding in their specialization field, so before they hire
someone they first see if your grades in college are high as it means you excel
and that you master or understand your subject matter well.  It is best that the students will be able to
master their subject of specialization because it will give them confidence in
their future work place. And also being able to master their subject of
specialization will result to a responsible, reliable and productive worker
that will help the society to flourish more.

There are many factors that affect the academic
performance of college students in AB-Sociology Department. And I think one of
them is the grades from their high school subjects. And these subjects are a
Science, English, Math, and Social Science as these subjects helps to develop
the skills that are needed as a future sociologist. Major subjects in the
sociology department requires you a lot of critical thinking, analyzing,
problem solving, writing and reading. And these skills or abilities are the
result of our years of studying, as we studies from childhood to adulthood. These
skills and abilities will also only develop if our years of studying are
effective. If not they will not flourish/develop properly.

Science, English, Math and Social Science are
the subjects that we frequently or continued studying from the moment we first
step in school to high school. We study them for many years and are expected to
be able to master them, and yet some people cannot still master them or does
not perform well in that subject. Resulting them to have a low grade in that
subject. These grades can affect the grade you will have in your future major
subject. 

The effects of grade that they got from their
high school depend on the course that they will have in the college. In the case
of the sociology students, because they enrolled in the course of sociology
they must be good at English, Math, Science, and Social Science. As a
sociologist, is required to be good at complex problem solving, reading
comprehension, writing, critical thinking, analytical skills, and communication.
Just what I have said above you can have or develop them by studying the
subjects English, Math, Science, and Social Science, English. English is a
subject that can help you develop you reading comprehension, writing and
communication.  Social science also
develops your communication skills. Math develops your complex problem skills
and science develops your critical thinking and analytical skills.

Studying English helps you develop your reading
comprehension and writing. Reading comprehension is one of the most important
aspects of English literacy. A well-developed reading comprehension skillset
allows people to quickly read and understand text, from novels and textbooks to
newspaper or magazine articles. Since literacy is arguably the most important
skill for any individual and reading comprehension is one of the most important
aspects of literacy, developing your reading comprehension skills is an
essential part of modern education. It is also essential for a sociology
student whose future is to be a researcher as it is required a lot of reading
and writing. Being able to fully understand what you have read and being able
to write about it.

English is important as it is our universal
language and our secondary language. So by studying English your scope of
communication will probably widen as you can communicate internationally.
Students
having good communication skills it expands the students’ performance
(Abdullah, 2011). William & Burden (1997) found that language inculcate
confidence among students to use the new language to communicate, to discuss,
to try new ways of conveying meanings and to be trained from. Philippines are
known for being good at English, for being able to keep pace with the
foreigners. That’s why foreigners like or love to come in our country because
we can communicate at them. Companies nowadays are becoming more and more international,
and English is listed as an essential skill for more and more jobs. There are
some organizations that now conduct all their business in English, no matter
where in the world they are based.

 

Social Science just like English it also
develop your communication skills as

 

 

One of the factors to know that you master or
understand your subject matter is by having a high grade in that subject.  

The student’s grade in their major subject is
only one of the factors that determine whether or not you understand your major
subject. It also

While a minor is a secondary concentration of
courses that often complements the Major. These are the subjects that are related
or have significance in their major or subject of specialization.

 

A person can get these skills through years
of studying. From child to adulthood we are studying, we study different
subject matters. Most of these subjects are English, Math, Science and Social
Science. These are the subjects that we are repeatedly studying from
kindergarten until high school. But even though we frequently study them we can
still not master it thoroughly

matters in a continuous way some of us can’t still master them thoroughly.
