    Is anyone doing or has done the unit 2 exam (education and methods), and would like to pass on good some advice
    It's so much easier than unit 1. Know methods in context well as unless you link the 2nd section question to the issue your marks stay low. Time is tight again so just keep writing and focusing. Relax,, my friend forgot what theoretical issues were for the 3rd section and still got 10/20

    Yep if you just write generic advantages and disadvantages of the research method without relating to the context you could still get up to 10 marks.

    People who wrote about parsons and bott in the first essay, i don't think those studies may be relevant as it said factors AFFECTING power and division of labour , parsons doesnt give factors he just says they're suited to the roles, and bott just identifies two roles
    Yeah I wrote about Parsons etc but stuck to the REASONS, such as labour saving devices, industrial changes which led to the separation of paid work from home, shift in norms, paid work, gender roles and men earning more money. Oh also patriarchal society.

    Yep - what did you say the main factors were? I said social class, social networks and the woman's career or job.

    Did you explain how they effect how the domestic labour is split?! I put social class, type of family and geographical mobility/privatised family?!?!?

    Posted from TSR Mobile

    Haha, I remembered that WALES thing and it actually helped a lot!
    ...Not that I could remember what A or E stood for :P But it still saved me from missing a question.

    The paper on the whole was a dream. I knew every answer even though I've done probably a week of studying! Definitely got at least 30 marks. So hopefully a C or above

    For my Functionalist question, I talked about um, Murdock four function, Parson function fit theory and the used eg. And then I talked about his irreducible functions only nuclear family do. THEN I just criszted it with Marxist and Feminist and then used Marxist Fem Ansley with her **** takers stuff. I also kept linking back to the damn question,


    Is that enough? ;/

    I don't know if I've messed up or not. I didn't do any past papers or even timed essays prior to that exam. So I don't know if I have written in the correct exam style.

    I opened the question booklet and for the first 5 minutes I sat there in amazement at how good the questions were.

    For the first question regarding power relationships and division of labour I mentioned the likes of Bott, Young & Wilmott, Parsons, Hardill, Pahl & Vogler, Dobash & Dobash and Oakley.

    For the second essay I outlined the functionalist perspective by using Murdock, Parsons' two functions, Parsons functional fit and criticised these points with Zaretsky, Millet, Oakley and other criticisms.

    I feel that I focused too much on naming and criticising sociologists as oppose to expanding on the points I made and explaining them.

    What do you guys think from what I have said?

    Hope the exam went okay for everyone!

    That's exactly what I did kind of,basically when I mentioned the critics I explained what they said and why they criticised a certain point then I tried to refer it back to the questions. As long as you mentioned your AO1 and AO2 while using key terminology then you should be fine.Also did you list the points? Structure is important to gain high marks too.

    I didn't list them, no. But I was incredibly rushed for time and resorted to using the vocabulary of a two-year-old so I'm not entirely certain that my key terminology was evident.

    It's so frustrating because I know that I know it but it's just trying to convey my knowledge within a certain period of time and under pressure. But unfortunately that's what exams are like.

    Hi guys,
    the exam was 'ok' could have done much better, and would of save time if iknew how pathetic these questions will be, would of not done such in-depth revision!
    anyway, i was wondering if you loose mark for writing the wrong date next to a study.. I think i wrote Dunne 1997 instead of 1999;(
    It went well apart from few spelling errors and having 10minutes to finish the last essay.
    In jan i got 38/60 and got marked a D, how does that make sense?
    That wasn't a D ! I got 38 and it was a B... One mark off an A!
