    Just wondering, how are people revising right now?
    I've just been going over past papers and then looking at the mark scheme.

    Also, does anyone have a list of studies for each topic? I know what it is about but I keep forgetting names to include D:

    I revised that question today. Was dreading it coming up but it surprised me by how much I remembered from that lesson which seems months ago. It would be nice if it came up- much rather that than Action Theories/anything about postmodernists!

    For the 12 and 15 Mark questions, should we do a introduction and conclusion and how much should we write??
    Both my teachers are examiners and they both say no introductions because of the time constraints but a conclusion is vital. I find it's good to do a definition at the beginning to get into it though.
    For example, if the question is about Marxism i would define it and the key ideas in relation to C&D such as, MArxism is a conflict theory. Marxist theorists believe C&D is caused by capitalism because of its criminogenic nature. Class inequality in a capitalist economic system is a major cause of crime so to remove crime we need to have a revolution to abolish capitalism and achieve utopia.

    Not a great piece put you get the idea. This way you sound like you have a clear understanding but pick up knowledge marks straight away

    Hope that helps but if not sorry and good luck

    Really?
    I would prefer that compared to the sociology/science question.

    I would disagree with that just because of my own experience.
    I have a B at A-Level and I doubt I did any conclusions.. and if I did it would have been one line of "I think both theories have their positives and negatives..'

    I really wish my sociology revision was as interesting as reading this thread right now. Exams make me lose the will to live. I think i have read over the same gender passage for a good 10 minutes now. Its getting ridiculous.

    LOL'S! ahaha
    Sorry, the way I read that, just made me burst out in laughter! But yes... I'm pulling an all-nighter. Done the same for my Family and Households and Education with Research Methods in June I got B's in both.

    You got MSN? We could motivate each other + Discuss what we are doing?

    If anyone wants quick helpful revision that's very condensed (guessing all of you still up are pulling an all nighter due to lack of prior revision like me) then these might be useful.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPWak..._order&list=UL

    This person has done several videos with the basic knowledge we need to know, i think they're great.

    Hope they help

    Good luck everyone!

    Can anyone please explain to me what 'inductive reasoning' is? Cheers
    Do you mean the inductive approach on Sociology as a Science? This is when you gather the data on a topic and then create a hypothesis rather than creating a hypothesis then gathering the data (deductive).

    I'm not sure if it's the definition that you're looking for...
    Hope it helps!

    P.S. Good luck to everyone!
