    I thought the questions were okay but the lone mothers in number 2 really got me! I just wrote 1 point- it's due to the assumptions made about women being naturally suited to be the home maker/ nurturer and couldn't think of a second point😔 Question 5 was good but I was confused with the way the question was structured so spent about 5 mins rereading the question but I wrote about the ideal family of talcott parsons 'nuclear and how the needs of those family change depending on the social structure it's found in and this change results in loss of function (so unit of production) and then I wrote about new right and how they disliked family diversity - and critisised with feminism but I ran out of time and I made bullet points of the 5 diversity of family(rapports) or something and wrote what they were and becks (risk society) so my question is, is it possible to gain few marks with just bullet points and a little bit of explanation?
    i hope you all did well and get the grades! 🙏🏻😆

    i thought this was the hardest paper ever set in the syllabus

    both questions were really tricky. normally they have one tricky question and one simple question like 'assess feminist contribution to the family' but the questions were disgusting.
    ah well on to unit 2

    what is there even a topic for feminism?

    what would write about practical factors influencing choice of methods...how would you structure it?
    Ignore feminism i didn't mean to type that lol.

    Practical factors include:

    Time - Participant observation and unstructured take longer than surveys
    Finance - Some methods cheaper than others e.g. postal questionnaires are cheap
    Source of funding - Sponsered by government? Business? Charity? Often easier to get funding for quantitative research
    Personal factors - Reseachers have family comittments etc, may not be able to do lengthy research in this field
    Research opportunity - If opp suddenly appears, researcher may have no time to prepare lengthy questionnaires or interview schedules.
    Personal danger - Methods involving direct contact with research group increase possibility of danger (this is also an ethical issue but point out that some cross over more than one category to get analysis marks)

    Okay but how would you structure it? What do you evaluate it

    lol, I predicted all the questions so I'm quite happy, but I didn't feel confident with the equality question so I did that one last and only managed to fit in one paragraph of the feminist perspective and a sentence on parsons segregated conjugal roles... so I'm screwed for that one but I thoroughly enjoyed the functions of the family paired with family diversity one... hated the dependency ratio thing... wtf was that?!? then I find out everyone knew what to write :|

    Social class is my main gut feeling of what will come up as the 20 marker essay. However, I reckon there's a good chance a theories question (functionalism, new right, Marxism) could come up as well
