    Remember that the grade boundaries are fairly low. Probably only 62 or something out of 90 for an A

    That's true. Ugh I had the knowledge in my head but I didn't want to talk about it because I thought social groups meant we have a choice and it isn't obligatory to talk about all 3

    For gender there was GIST, WISE and you could have also mentioned some policies on boys like the reading champions scheme maybe. I'm a bit unsure with the boys ones.

    For ethnicity there was assimiliation which is when schools try to assimilate ethnic minorities into the mainstream British culture to raise achievement. And then there was multicultural education and social inclusions via policies such as the race relation act

    The gender one was particularly small but lets just hope we can get into the middle band at least. I'm sure we will.

    omg what? so social group isn't class? i swear u cant really apply the educational policies on gender or ethnicity????
    You can mention about the changes in opportunities for women, for example, in the tripartite system, girls had to gain more points to get into grammar schools however nowadays there are policies set up like GIST and WISE that encourage females to take on science and technology careers/opportunities.

    Also for ethnicity you can talk about assimilation where governments tried to move ethnic minorities into mainstream British culture for example helping those whose first language wasn't English. However you can argue this with the fact that some minorities who did speak English as their first language still underachieved due to poverty and racism. You could have also talked about multicultural education and social inclusion and given an evaluation for both of these.

    With gender you could have talked about how girls in the tripartite system had to gain more points to attend grammar schools and how this has changed by as you said GIST and WISE. For boys there were policies set up to help boys and their literacy skills as this was why they were underachieving due to lack of male educational role models e.g. lack of male primary school teachers. The one I always remembers is 'The Sons and Dads Program' that encourages father to encourage their sons education more and help them out with it. There were many more as well along with this.

    Why is everyone panicking, you've done all you can and panicking won't change it. Also why is everyone so sure the 'examiner' is actually an examiner?

    That was such a great paper!
    For the 20 marker for education did you have to mention gender , ethnicity and class or would have it been fine to just do social inequalities? Because some people in my class did all 3 social groups..
    I just did the class inequalities. What did you do and mention if you don't mind me asking?

    Well,l that exam was a biter! I hope you all found it all right- some of my class only wrote class and gender, but i think a good few of us got all three ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ kinda botched the methods in context and I could feel myself getting tired and muddled toward the end but I'm sure it could've gone worse :,)
