    Yeah I need an A too but seems really unlikely at the moment. You should try the website getrevising.co.uk it has word documents, powerpoints etc on there and i found some really useful stuff on there.

    Yeah, there is a new format and in my opinion i reckon it is easier. It is started with two 21 mark essays on crime and deviance, one 15 mark essay for a research method and a final theories 33 mark essay!
    this is better, as having single 4 and 6 mark questions you need to be spot on with, but with essays you can hoover up more marks.

    Well my teacher has predicted; labelling, state crimes, green crimes, globalisation and punishment as a chance of the questions coming up

    for the theory section policies, socio as a science, social action theories and post modernism was predicted. I doubt values will come up as it came up last year and feminism came up the year before.
    How is everyones revision going?

    Well the guy who wrote the sociology papers like a few years back came into my college and said we're overdue a 33 marker on a theory. Also he thinks that courts will come up at some point. I doubt there will be a 33 marker on science or values. but worth revising everything of course. I gotta get a B in this exam or i'm screwed

    He also said that these were the grade boundaries, out of 90, for the last 3 years and will most likely be the same, if not, very similar this year:

    A* 61
    A 55
    B 49
    C 43
    D 37
    E 31

    Out of 90! So if we work hard we should be able to get A or more..

    I'm pretty much okay with it - was a bit hard at first but it's sticking.

    merton and durkheim are pretty easy ones to remember
