Hey, I did AS sociology last year and dropped it this year :3

I'd advice you to make ample cue cards with all the sociologist's names and theories!!! Well, first read the book once or twice to get a general gist of things, then simply make 232498274 cue cards about the theories, their meaning/interpretation/criticism etc.

I agree time is running out, but don't panic, you can still do very well

Good luck

I took 5 AS subjects: Biology, sociology, chemistry, maths and Arabic... sociology was by far my worst subject xD I hated it so much, hated the content, my teacher's teaching methods etc.

Hmm... what exam board are you doing? I remember the Collins book was good but way too lengthy, but the harlambos book was much much better and much more concise with example essay answers.

The mark scheme provided for past papers was good enough though as an example answer, wasn't it? I mean it had the basic points and you just had to integrate them in your answer? Maybe it depends on the exam board idk

Haha, so true!!! Yeah, I did another board, but the content is still pretty much the same xD yes, definitely buy the Haralambos book, it's really worth the money I never actually knew about S-cool website until I started year 13 >.> but as long as you know the sociologists and their theories, I'm confident you can get atleast a C!
