    I wrote about patent maintenance and how the schools may hold ethnocentric views which could isolate some ethnic minorities causing them to underachieve. And then I talked about the hidden curriculum and correspondence principle from the Marxist view
    I wrote about the hidden curriculum I explained what it was etc, how did u explain how it affects achievement ? Xxx

    If you find out would you please notify, because i talked about streaming and meritocracy. The question was too vague to be honest.

    It didn't ask about functions alone, it asked for functional policies which is entirely different to functions
    The 10 marker definitely asked for functions alone. They wouldn't ask two social policy questions in a row, racking up 16 marks

    Yeah, I'm sorry but that's not what it was asking - functions are what the school provides (i.e. things functionalists like, such as social solidarity, meritocracy, role allocation).
    I wrote about meritocracy and its flaws (i.e intellectual elitism) and also ethnocentric curriculum. Did I mess up? :-/

    Meritocracy is right (did you link it to Parsons?) but I'm not sure about the ethnocentric curriculum

    Unfortunately, I don't think that is correct. When it asked for functions I think it was talking about the different perspectives
    I also made this mistake
    I did that as well the question wasn't written that well don't worry

    The hidden curriculum linked with the Marxist approach and so I said that it is a way for which students especially those from working class can be produced to become obedient workers eg. Coming to school on time= being in time for work,. My teacher had said that during the stress of the exam most people are most likely to outline and define their point with an eg linked with school. But you have to remember to always link it back to the question. Why is the hidden curriculum a function in sch to underachievement etc?. Me giving 'punctuality' and a way in which it contributes isn't an explanation but an example. You were more likely to get full marks if u actually explained how it links.

    Just don't stress, and try and get your MAIN theory learnt, if you know nothing don't panic about learning the smaller theorists who are just used to evaluate.

    Also find a way that will help you revise and stick to it, whether that be revision cards or mind maps.

    Hope it helps!
