    I said this to the sociology teacher at my school and she said its a rumour?
    This spec is changing next year - the crime and deviance section will be worth more marks (2 big essays) and there will just be one 15 marker for methods in context.

    21+21+15+33 = 90 marks

    Doesnt affect those sitting the June 2011 paper though.
    Good luck to everyone getting results tomorrow

    This is what I told the sociology teacher at my school but she still thinks its a rumour? Or she's in denial I think its good that they're changing it

    So they're basically getting rid of the smaller questions and adding the marks onto the essays

    Why are all you's doing really well in Sociology? What are you's studying from? Method of studying? I'm really in a bad place right now, this could f-up my University choice

    I use the A2 Sociology textbook by Webb,Westergaard,Trobe and Steel.
    It includes everything that you need to know for the AQA specification, I'd recommend using that.

    Where would I get that? I also have to study for the Media Unit 3 Sociology exam in June, it's only new so I don't know where I could get help on it? Really panicing here about Sociology ruining my hopes of University...

    You could purchase one off Amazon, for £20.38.
    However, it only includes Crime and Deviance, Methods and Theory, and Beliefs in Society. Not Media..

    I got 104/120 - does that mean I just scraped an A? I don't really understand the grade boundaries for this.

    I don't understand how you could not learn without the A2 Sociology textbook by Webb, Westergaard, Trobe and Steel?!

    Resit the exam in the summer, if you want an A get the A2 book and learn the Crime and Deviance section, the Methods and the Theories back to front so that you can recall anything- don't let anything be a grey area.
    Once you've done that read the relevant sections in the Haralambos and Holborne textbook; it's great for a deeper understanding.
    Although your teacher might obsess over learning all the sociologists and their theories, as long as you know the names for the the main theories such as subcultural etc you should be OK- I wouldn't personally worry too much about learning the sociologists who just say a line or two.

    It might seem a bit daunting at first but once you get into it it's actually quite interesting. Just make notes to back up your revision and use index cards to remember the theories and names.

    Good luck!
