    new right will not come up as a 20 marker. It will not i repeat. I have been over every single past exam paper this does not exist its too short. New right is associated to social policy and that came up last year

    Ignore functionalism it came up in 2014. Your wasting your time going over that trust me. If a theory has to come up it would most likely be marxism

    Yeah but don't you need functionalism to critercise Marxism?
    You know ethnicity....how would you structure it? There are so many studies and we won't have time to write so much.... Like what would you include

    Using material from item a and elsewhere,asses sociological explanations of ethnic differences in educational achievement (20 marks)- plan from my essay which scored 18/20

    Intro- explain one on the reasons of differences in educational achievement i.e. cultural differences
    Use statistics who does better and why?
    Criticism, ethnicity is not the only factor affecting achievement

    Para 1: Talk about cultural factors i.e. language differences in home
    Use a case study
    Criticism: Some people aren't affected by this... ethnicity which are still achieving regardless??

    Para 2: A pupils family background
    An example of an ethnicity how it affects education..?
    Cricism: Asian families still achieving

    Para 3: Different economic background
    Ethnicity example of lower background and underachievement

    Para 4: Interactionist sociologists- internal factors interaction = affects achievement
    1.Curriculam- ethnocentric
    For example....
    Case study
    2.Racism in schools
    For example...
    Case study

    Para 5: Two reasons why theories can be criticised
    1.Ethic differences not so important in producing such differences in achievement- indian student tend to do well rather than disadvantaged by it
    2.They ignore other factos such as class and gender example of a gender difference between girls and boys which is ethnicity linked i.e. black girls/white working boys

    Conclulsion: There are sociological explanations for differences in educational achievement HOWEVER, not all ethnic minorities underachieve.

    Also to your question on don't you ned functionalism to critisie marxism, i only used functionalist in around one paragraph for my essays on marxism, so you don't really need in. In your criticisms you can use Willis, and then briefly say like the functionalist perspective on their opposing view (not really necessary to use case study) Most of the time people make the mistake of writing too much for criticisms for theories, when you can get away with shortly outlining it and scoring high marks!!!! hope this helped

    Thanks a lot
    I hope it doesn't come up though lol too much to write
    I don't think it will come up because ethnicity has been asked quiet a bit for the shorter mark questions
    I think it will be a theory because it hasn't come up in a while

Maybe just stick to whats best for you. How are u revising for methods in context? And what do u think will come up for the 12 marker?

    I predict ethnicity, clss external/internal or MARXISM will come up. Ethnicity+ class being at the same level of highly likely and marxism maybe with gender very unlikely.. (FOR 20 MARKERS FOR EDUCATION). Learn these 3 topics thoroughly and EVERYONE will do good on the 20 marker for education.
    how sure are you for this?

    i've been ill and havent revised so i might just go over these topics.
