    It's just an annoying topic! the first thing i'm going to do is open my paper on thursday & straight away look whether it's a question on science *fingers crossed it isn't! That's helped, thank you! Yh your on the right path, I've noticed the following kind of links in with unit 3 'beliefs in society' -ideology & science. I only remember poper & Kuhn too. And there's Comte - who believes sociology is scientific' & like paradigms etc: My revision is really brief on this topic, which is annoying!
    I know it is!! I want social policy I love that!!! Yeah same! I may even answer it first ill see! ah yeah it will do! But I did that in jan so not up to date on my knowledge of all that and cba going over it all again! oh well lets pray for a nice paper!!!!

    Me too sociology policy would be such a nice question or action theories!! There my too favourite! I really hate post modernity too after sociology as a science haha me too! same, I knew so much on unit 3 which links with this unit, but typical that i've forgotten it all! :/ Fingers crossed!! I pray for a nice paper!!! cause my overall grade depends on this paper! since I got an E in unit 1/2 & a B in unit 3 ... but re-took unit 2 a few weeks ago, so hope i still can get a C overall. Good luck on all your exams!!!!

    I say concentrate on the ones that have not yet come up previously, Social policy and postmodernism and modernity as well as Marxism. And quickly read over the other questions that have previously come up don't stress and get your self into a panic. You have time

    Location and Crime, age and crime, green crime and state crime have not yet come up so it would make sense to focus on these

    Well we really cant predict the questions but we can look at the questions that have not been previously set for the theory and methods bit. Don't stress your self out, concentrate on the 33 mark questions for couple of hours and then move on to crime and deviance questions and finally have a look at methods. So what I'm assuming may come up for the 33 markers is either Social policy and sociology, Marxism, Postmodernism and modernity.

    Apparently it came up on the January paper, so what is the chance of it coming up again! but I had a look at the previous paper and I must admit that question has come up a few times its a popular one with the examiners lol. I'm just risking it and going with my instinct of revising for only three essays for the theory and methods section

    Yes talk about cohens status frustration, young people suffer from being in a state of transition and because they lack power and are compelled to conform by family and school they turn to their friendship groups and try and compensate their frustration by proving that they can be powerful, Also miller's suggestion that subcultures behave in terms of proving masculinity, power and about excitement, Make sure you introduce edgework about thrill seeking and individuals dont see it in terms of crime but just as thrill and trying to prove them self in competition. And they try to introduce techniques of Neutralization justify what they do. And also that young working classes are the ones who commit crime because they arent socialized also how the media may influence young people, and how it sensationalizes their crime and police targeting them. And just criticizes with marxism and just say official statics are invalid and scapegoating working classes BLAH BLAH you know just use common sense you will do great
