    I have a mock for Sociology and I'm struggling on how to revise and where to start from? The exam board is OCR. Anyone here do A Level Sociology who can help me out?

    I did OCR Sociology A Level. Which modules are you doing?

    I can help with:
    • G671
    • G672
    • G673
    • G674
    What are you struggling with? The content or exam questions?

    You can always use the TSR Study Resources for any subject, pretty helpful revision material on there. Also there is a very useful Study Planner on TSR which you may use, if you find that timetables are something you don't stick to then make a list of things to do per day/week and tick it off as you go along.

    You can use the Forest application on your phone to focus.

    Here's a few things you can include:
    • Widespread use of contraception
    • People now hold more of a consuming lifestyle
    • Couples tend to have fewer children or have them later- therefore women develop careers before motherhood
    • Fertility has reduced due to changes in age profile
    • Decline in marriage
    • Increase in divorce
    • Changing values
    • New concepts (for example: single-hood, childfree, single-parents)
    Make sure to include:
    • Feminism, postmodernism, New Right theories throughout
    • Explanations: increasing choice and diversity, changing role of women in society, feminisation of labour force
    • Use statistics (Here's a range of statistics to use for G672)
    Keep note that I'm assuming you know how to structure by now.
