    I did OCR Sociology Unit 1 and 3 exams today.

    Safe to say the exam board have realised how easy it was before and made it a lot harder this year. Completely threw me.
    thats sociology basics and prerelease right, the 12 mark question on basics was so vague (why is primary socialisation more effective than seconday sociolisation)

    The edexcel citizenship was a lot harder than I expected Only just finished in time.

    damn I completed it just in time! I did the 16 year old voting one lol what did you do?
    I did this one as well. I was actually really happy when I saw that question eventhough in my school they prepared us for justice system but I am happy that I did what I wanted.
    Which one are you doing for unit 3 ?

    My advice to you and BlackRose is to not stress! I put emphasis on this because if you can't get past this and learn from it then all that is going to happen is you will 'flop' the rest learn from your mistake and make sure you time your exam questions. I know it is unfortunate but it could have been happened in what six forms and colleges view as more valuable A.K.A the core subjects. This could be fate :cool: so make this a lesson because if you do its blessing :cool:

    Fingers crossed for you hope this helped

    Sorry, been seeing this a lot: what is citizenship? Sounds like religious studies and ethics!

    How did you all find the test today? Luckily i found it a lot easier(i did 3B- changing communities), hopefully it can bring back up my grade XD

    Just wondering it i got two A's (42/50) in my controlled assessment and im looking at a D/C for my first test and B/A for the second test do you think it will be possible for me to get an B overall? i really dont want a C XD
