I am freaking out about this exam.

I have all the information but no evaluation information. I feel like we've not been taught it at all?

Hey Guys, my teacher gave us some pretty convincing reasons on which topics are most likely to come up. She said that Marxism, Functionalism, Criminal statistics and crime and ethnicity! good luck!

My teacher said today that Ethnicity and crime may come up and also for the 15 marker she said it could be possible for delinquency or Moral panics! I am praying that realism does not come up I really don't like it!!

Marxism seems more likely as it's quite a big topoc and has never come up yet

If Marxism comes up I will cry with happiness, if realism comes up I may as well not do the exam.

I don't know how to feel about the paper. I thought the Anomie one was alright and I chose the gender question... I just hope I put down the right things... Im also panicking with the amount of evaluation I done.. I don't feel it was enough!

I wrote a paragraph for the gender question about:

Lombrosso, Freud and the Biological theory of Crime and Gender
Pat Carlen and the Gender and Class Deal
Freda Adler and the rising in crime of women
Talcott Parsons and the Socialisation of Men and Wome
Otto Polacks, Masked Female Offender.

I tried to put 2 points of evaluation for each.

I used 7 evaluations from Sociologists and I used 2 evaluations in General.

The thing that worries me is the question said "Evaluate Sociological theories of the differences between gender and crime" and missed the word "Outline and Evaluate" so I'm wondering if we were supposed to write about the actual theories or just evaluate them?
