    Hi, I'm doing both as well, my teacher seems to think that sociology as a science and social policy will come up for SCLY4 but isn't really sure about SCLY3, so just luck of the draw, hope you do well in the exams!

    FML my teacher thinks sociology as a science, social policy and realism will come up. Out of those only done realism so far ..it's either that or gender to come up for crime. Not bothered, need a D in this last unit. But good luck to you!

    Sociology is science is in the name.. just positivism v interpretivism, social policy is like laws and stuff. Realism are the realist views i.e left/right realism

    I'm not ready for sociology either..got theory to do yet!

    I doubt sociology as a science will come up again in SCLY4 because it came up in January as the big 33 marker! There are loads other topics in the theory section that they could ask us.

    But does anyone know what questions came up in january for SCLY3 religion unit??

    Oh dear, well you've got time, just cram with those topics! & oh that's good, I only need to get an E to get a B, so I'm not too worried, but still, it's nice to know stuff haha.
    Good luck to you too!

    I am doing both these exams this week and next week also. am on top of scly3 now i think. will do some more revision today and tomorrow though just to be sure as 3 seems a much easier exam, so am hoping to pull a lot of marks in there to take the pressure off scly 4! good luck for wednesday everyone.

    I did SCLY3 in jan13.

    Questions were as follows:
    1) three reasons why women are disadvantaged by religion
    2) assess the view that religion is no longer a sacred canopy
    3) religion inhibits social change or;
    4) the role and influence of NAM's today

    I'm revising from the start sociology and science, since people are suggesting it will come up, this scares me would you say I've left it too late? Like could someone please explain to me what it's about, because my revision book includes too much content. :confused:

    So am I! I tried to start it today it's so much!!! But I think the basics we would need are positivism interpretivism then some people like popper and Kuhn and what they think?! Then I guess surely we could bring in like functionalism they think sociology is science and then interactionists who wouldn't?! Argh too much hope that helps!

    I hate learning things shallowly. So I have to solidly teach myself theory for a week theory is boring too. I guess I shouldn't have missed 10 lessons sigh

    It's just an annoying topic! the first thing i'm going to do is open my paper on thursday & straight away look whether it's a question on science *fingers crossed it isn't! That's helped, thank you! Yh your on the right path, I've noticed the following kind of links in with unit 3 'beliefs in society' -ideology & science. I only remember poper & Kuhn too. And there's Comte - who believes sociology is scientific' & like paradigms etc: My revision is really brief on this topic, which is annoying!

    I'm doing this exam tomorrow afternoon... not too worried about it, it is a lot easier than the Crime and Deviance/Methods/Theory side... should be okay as I got an A* in the mock with very little revision... starting to panic about the other half next week though! There's so much content! o.O
    I need a B to get into my University but really want an A as I've applied for a Sociology degree and it's really something that I enjoy.
    So, good luck to everyone tomorrow! Hope it all goes well

    fingers crossed for a question on Marxism and religion!
