    You only have to learn about 3/4 theorists for all the theories e.g. For Marxists = Althusser, Bowles and Gintis, Bernstein etc.

    Is citing the specific sociologists really important? I can't remember them for the life of me. :cry:

    Good luck for tomorrow, everyone.

    Thats what my teacher said! Just use key terms. I usually do 4 points one of each theorist a bit of evaluation on the end and to counter it another theorist.. but you dont have to. Just try your best, and try to get all the short answers right as they will help add up your marks

    So I've tried to do a rough time breakdown based on the specimen paper:

    1st question: 2 marks - 5 minutes
    2nd question: 2 marks - 5 minutes
    3rd question: 6 marks - 10 minutes
    4th question: 10 marks - 15 minutes
    5th question: 20 marks - 25 minutes
    6th question: 20 marks - 25 minutes

    5 minutes spare. (to check over paper, remember to breathe, plan, etc.)

    Does this sound silly? Do you think the time allocation is balanced?

    The two specimen papers' 20 markers were on ethnicity and achievement and internal factors affecting achievement - so are educational policy and the role of education in society most likely to be the 20 markers? (I may be alone in saying this but I hope so!)

    Four markers only appear on pure research methods (paper 2). A bit of both, really - you state the reason and then give a line of explanation. For example, if the question was 'Give 3 reasons for the increase in girls' achievement', you'd say 'introduction of coursework' as your point, and then explain by saying 'girls are generally more conscientious workers than boys, so the introduction of coursework benefits them more as it's a longer project than exams, which raises their achievement' - just make a link back to the question. Both the 4 and 6 markers work the same way - you'll just have 2 or 3 reasons/examples respectively.

    Where state ceases to be provider of ed instead it commissions priv companies to provide services! Academies, free schools etc

    Different policies throughout the years - e.g. tripartite system 1944; comprehensivisation 1965; marketisation 1988; New Labour continued marketisation; coalition free schools and academies. Not sure how it'd work as a 20 marker though.
