    Guys what will we need to get in each paper (new spec) for an A overall in terms of marks??
    43 - 45 per paper, but you can get 60 in one and 30 in the other and get an A

    this is the old spec boundaries tho, so may change

    I wrote about divorce and criticised it with Charles Murray and the introduction of Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit and how they give parents more disposable income to spend on children/food.

    I did Cuture and Identity; for the 20 marker I set it out like this

    P1 - Hall and 'cultural supermarket effect' + Hybrid identities and evaluated it with Marxism
    P2 - Ritzer's theory of McDonaldisation and evaluated it with cultural relativism/poststructuralism
    P3 - Gender being a more significant impact and evaluated it with some study saying not one factor is more important than another
    P4 - Conclusion saying that not one factor is more significant than another

    So, good 20 marker wasn't it?

    What did you put for the ten marker? My first point was liberalization of divorce laws mean children are now more likely to live in SPF and RF. My second point was about increased child protection.
    I put that for my ten marker

    1) ethical issues-
    •informed consent-covert or experiment s
    •sensitive questions- unstructured going off topic or structured asking Qs and you can't skip

    2) 16 mark questions-advantages of official stats
    •cheap and easy to get
    •advantages and disadvantages of soft and hard data
    • can be manipulated and some people might not include data that doesn't comply with hypotheses

    8) serial monogamy- series of relationships with one exclusive person at a time

    9)reasons for exploitation of women in the family
    • triple shift/dual burden
    • expressive roles- might want to go to work but oppressed
    10) reasons why women have kids later
    •feminism
    • careers
    • technology- abortions,contraception

    11) government policies that affect childhood today
    •China's one child policy- causes lonely kids and beanpole fams
    • child protection laws- kids can't work til 16 and school leaving age is 16- protects kids and causes childhood to be extended than earlier in history

    12- essay on Marxist and the family-
    Feminist views, new life perspective view,Marxist view, Marxist feminist view, Chester and neo-conventional family, stats, Murdock,parsons, dual labour, triple shift, Ann Oakley etc didn't get to conclude ran out of time

    I would say roughly around the 40 range- wd tbh.

    4 mark- deception, 'going native'
    16 mark- studies such as Crime Survey, Bristol Health and Lifestyle and the Census- talked about their advantages and disadvantages and linked to whether or not official statistics is effective for means as a sociological research
    2 mark- left that out as I didn't revise key words
    6 mark- feminism, women's increased work independence(and financial) and secularisation(how religion has a less impact, religion emphasises on pro-creation blah blah)
    The 10 mark- I talked about national insurance(children can't get it until they turn 16) and child benefits(how it's given to parents and not children)
    Marxist essay- I did quite bad..

    But the question said 'Evaluate' which you need to talk about both- you need to analysis so you need the disadvantages.

    Outline 2 ways government policies affect the experience of childhood today. (10m)
    What did you guys put for this question?
    My first point was about compulsory schooling/raising of leaving age. I said that it affected their childhood because it allowed children to be in school for longer which protected them from working at an early age which happened in the past.

    Then I wrote about the introduction of the NHS.. How it positively affected children's experience of childhood today due to mass immunisation from disease such as whooping cough. Mentioned lower IMR also.

    no, you need to include disadvantages or you lose a lot of marks. it's needed to count as evaluation
