    I think I did worse than last year lol
    Don't think I write enough and my answers were not great
    Your answers seem good

    I'm sure your overthinking, I'm crap at sociology, an A will probably be 60/90 or a B like 55/90, which methods in context did u pick?

    aha thats lucky! & yeah i found the exam soo much easier than last year and i mean i was ill through last years exam but still the questions were so much easier and straight forward.

    i think i worded sampling frame differently to you. for sampling frame i put; a framework in which a researcher chooses their sample from the research population. for advantages of longitudinal studies i said that it gives the researcher vast quantities of qualitative data so that the researcher can fully understand the changes and meanings that individuals attach to situations and the effect it has on them. for disadvantages i said that as longitudinal studies take place over a long period of time, participants may drop out i.e die or may change their mind about being studied, leaving the researcher with incomplete data or something along those lines!

    Oh sweet as! i thought the test was relatively straight forward, an hour before the exam i went through gender and ethnic differences with my friend we were both stoked after.

    Did you put the same thing as me for the sampling frame & longitude studies? Those were confusing

    theres a whole revision pack of notes on the all the theories of crime on a website called getrevising which is where i revised from for my mocks and that helped. i'll link it; https://getrevising.co.uk/revision-n...e_and_deviance , theres other revision notes on there that people have put up as well which are really useful

    Lol what a mess up
    Mailed is emailed lol
    If it was postal they would have said postal
    Cheeky question though because mailed is another word for postal
    No, mailed definitely meant postal...

    emailed is and never has been pronounced 'mailed' ever. Postal is very often referred to as mailed. Email questionnaires aren't even part of the spec.
