    Just re-replying as didn't do it properly first time!
    I did SCLY 1 Poverty unit this morning, did you find it ok, I was happy at the time, but can think of things I did wrong now

    But, thinking positive
    I found it okay, I didn't like the second question that much as I found it vague it terrifies me that I've written the wrong thing. I had to rush to finish so I didn't like how I ended it and I didn't reread so I'm hoping there's no stupid mistakes in there. How did you find it?

    I also can't remember the questions. It was define the culture of dependancy (2 marks), ???????? (4 marks), disadvantages of selective benefits (6) right??

    That's the kind Of thing I did
    I'm really worried because it said 'in the last 40 years' in the question but the only policies I could think of were Sex Discrimination Act 1975, Equal Pay Act 1970, and GIST and WISE; do you think it counts because their effects are still seen today?

    1) idea of positive discimination in favour of culturally deprived children e.g. EMA, Bursayry etc
    2) i talked about culture capital and how marketisation has led to low achievement among the w/c because of socialisation etc and they more likely to pick people who are seen as 'ideal pupil' etc :s

    3) GIST, WISE, NATIONAL CURRICULUM (boys and girls sudy same), Triparte system (education fr all).

    4) for the 10 marker i talked about social solidarity and marxists view of ideological state apparatus and legitimising class inequality

    5) home factors: cultural deprivation, socialisation and material dep
    inside school: labelling, marketisation

    6) messed up methods in context


    what do u think grade boundaries will be, how much for an A out of 60
    and can someone check my answers
    also did i have to evaluate for 10 marks!?
    I'm not sure that tri-partite would count as it said 'policies in the last 40 years'

    I second this - my teacher said you need 80% for an A but I'm not sure.

    Yeah, I got 55 on the 2016 specimen paper - I was just wondering if the grade boundaries were likely to be different because I don't think I did as well on this one (thanks to the six-marker!), but thanks anyway.

    Are you sure 2 wasn't social class achievement? That's what people said in my class today, but I don't remember there being anything about social class.. I wrote about league tables and linked it to gender (cant remember if boys or girls)

    For the 6 marker I wrote about GIST, Equal Opportunity Act, then I couldn't think of WIST at the time. So I wrote about how female teachers come in to schools and present science technology etc to girls. And then about Education Reform Act, is one of them right or not? I had no idea haha
    Thank god i wrote about about GIST and equal opportuntity too!

    Yes, I know, but it was linked to something no? I thought it just said 'educational achievement' but nearly everyone in my class said it was 'social class achievement'.
