    Is this for the new specification?

    I'm feeling quite confident about sociology and have been getting 16-17 in my 20 mark questions.

    Does anyone know any usefull revision materials online, or any good revision techniques to remember sociologists and what they said?

    Hello, I've memorised like 109 sociologists for the Education unit, and currently got around 70 for Family and Households, of course I know what they say in note form I will expand linking with the question. How are you revising, and does anybody have any predictions for the Education paper on the 17th of May?

    It's always "definitions trends reasons half the essay is AO3 so evaluation points(showing other side of the argument) and conclusion -*(always about how you can't generalise there are other factors and if about education - the internal and external factors interlink & etc)
    It's not as great but I got taught this
    Hope this helped

    I got taught it this way, I'll give the example of ethnic differences in Education:

    Berciller and Engelman - A01
    Gillborn and Mirza - A02
    Meynihan - A01
    Charles Murray - A01
    Surroden - A01
    Sewell - A01
    Gillborn A02
    Lupton - A02
    McCulloch - A02

    Driver A02
    Keddie A02

    Palmer - A01
    Modood - A02

    Woods - A02

    For my 20 mark essay I would like to include at least the first list, stating the A01, and then evaluating it with the A02. Maybe, I would mix the A01s with the A02s so there would be a A01-A02-A01-A02 flow of the evaluation in relation to the question.

    Ughhhhh, the cola-isation stuff does my head in because it looks so irrelevant but it might come up! I guess aa long as you know what Molnar and Hall say about Privatisation then youre good? Or am I missing something
