    Questions one two where easy enough- full marks hopefully!
    I stuggled a wee bit with question 3(the ethnic imput to family diversity one) - I put something about Afro-Carribian single mums, the amout of forign doctors so they're middle class and something else.

    Marriage-Symetry in marriage, divorce rate, gay and lesbian couples, the domestic division of labour debate, domestic abuse, feminist views,

    Childhood-Aires, Toxic childhood,birthrate, infant mortality rate, protection (Acts and laws),seperate stage of life ,comercialisation,relationships with thier parents and family

    I think that's it- What do you guys think? I thought It went well, but do you all think I've failed? Honest replies would be great-I've tended to think I've done well in exams before, but it turns out I've really ballsed it up. I'd love a pass, but a B would be amazing for me!

    The timing was hard , Although you have to use the items it's difficult to turn the page all the time! But I kept on saying things such as " society is child centred now because" or to an extent they are child centred ...

    That's okay right?
    I don't know, I always told to put in 'as Item 2B states..'

    I didn't have to turn the page? :confused: It was all on one page in front of me..

    I thought the question was the change in pattern of marriage and cohabitation in the last 40 years or something. So I put about change in womens postition, secularisation, fall in stigma, young people wanting to remain in education etc... I'm worried now :confused:

    Yes, I did! You won't good marks if you don't, as you would have only answered half the question.

    Good cos everyone just keeps talking about marriage! I didn't have much to say about cohabitation, just Chester, Coast and Mocklin's studies, then decline in stigma or sex before marriage, contaception, abortion, etc etc. Hmm :dontknow:

    How much did people refer to Item 2B as well?

    I referred to it about three times? I hope thats okay
    I used "Item 2B stated..." a few times. It was made clear to us that not mentioning it when asked to would basically ruin your grade :/

    I did that, and mentioned the decline in religion, and cost of marriage. Also mentioned Leech, which no one else seems to have done. Also, I've only just realised I've quoted you twice without realising. I'm not a stalker.

    Phew! I feel a little better about this exam.. maybe. I really am not sure how I did, definitely didn't get top marks cos I didn't think my essays were as good as the ones I have practised. A bit rushed and all over the place really
