    Haven't yet seen a thread for Unit 4 of sociology so i thought I should start one I'm doing the crime and deviance section with methods and theory as opposed to stratification and differentiation. that section looks godawful!

    How's everyone's revision going for this exam? Has anyone's teacher predicted what they think will come up?

    I received an A for Unit 3, Beliefs in Society, but after a really bad health dip have only just started to properly revise for Unit 4. I have been studious, but since the beginning of this unit have honestly felt overwhelmed and have no clue where to start and no idea on framework =S

    well done on your A! oh that sucks, hope you're better now.

    I agree it is really weird. I just find it odd that they've chucked so much different stuff together - I like Crime and Deviance and find most of it interesting but the only thing I would be happy coming up Theory-wise is social policy or Marxism, neither of which seem likely. Methods is a doddle it's just so boring I can barely be bothered with it. Meeeh. Not feeling too bad overall about the exam though. just hope it's a nice one because some of the past papers look hell-ish

    Am I right in thinking that the grade boundaries are unusually low? I'm aiming for 68-70/90 which is 115-120 UMS. Seems too good to be true...

    I've just started with the stuff I find hardest to grasp. Like at the moment i'm making notes on Structure/Agency even though i hate it and don't really get it.

    I agree it is silly that they've lumped it all together, but research methods and crime seem easy compared with theory stuff!

    Thank you ^.^

    I agree, the arrangement does seem very random. Practise papers always help revision, I find : )

    I'm doing this terrible paper Our teacher told us that Realist views on C&D is likely to come up but don't necessarily count on it. AQA like to catch people out in terms of predictions.

    am i right in thinking that i just revise one topic for paper 3 (plan to do mass media) and one topic plus methods for paper 4? (plan to do crime and deviance).

    crime and deviance is such a huge topic though. haven't started revising anything yet as just take a month for revision, but it feels like it will be a biggie.

    Trying to find ideas as to what might come up in the c+d, theory and methods exam as there's waay too much to learn everything!!! My teacher has predicted that modernity/globalisation/postmodernity might come up but you never know with aqa! Has your teacher predicted anything?

    Myself and my crime teacher discussed this yesterday and we believe realism may come up for the crime and my theory teacher believes that for crime it will be realism or prevention methods; I also agreed with her that Marxism, Post-modernity and interactionism may be the theory question.

    Also, mail me your email and I can email you the list

    I would definitely revise methods again just to refresh your memory, especially because the a2 methods are slightly more advanced. You have over a month to revise so if you start now then i'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck!

    tbh i can't quite remember what my teacher's predicted for crime and deviance, however she's got a feeling that structure/agency will come up for theory! that's my worst nightmare if she says next lesson what she thinks will come up i'll post it on here
