    Basically, I was looking through the forums and saw that nobody had started a thread on this exam. I'm wondering how are you planning out your revision as I think I'm going to focus only on Gender and Ethnic Inequalities?

    Basically, I was looking through the forums and saw that nobody had started a thread on this exam. I'm wondering how are you planning out your revision as I think I'm going to focus only on Gender and Ethnic Inequalities?

    My teacher thinks age and race will come up, not class and gender. so I'm revising class, race and age.

    Plus, if anyone has an age essay can you put it on here, I'm struggling.

    I am doing this exam - only focusing on gender, ethnicity and age. I have looked at past exam questions and think something on ethnicity and age will come up as those two have never came up together. Having an absolute nightmare trying to remember all the statistics and studies relevant to the 3a/4a 20 marker

    Also, by analysing past exam questions, they never seem to use the same research methods/concepts twice and use new ones in both question 1 and 2. So the research methods and concepts that have not came up yet are things like longitudinal studies, content analysis, structured interviews etc

    Anyone resitting unit 3?

    Me too, hoping unit 3 will be on gender instead of ethnicity this time as I wrote a nice question today on something that hasn't come up yet!

    Last night I did a practice 20 marker and 40 marker for ethnicity
    Planning on doing an age 20 marker and 40 marker later today.

    They are both handwritten but I can outline my structure and bullet point of content if anyone wants to know.

    I absolutely HATE this unit of Sociology about inequalities and research methods (such a bore!)
    Even Crime and Deviance was a lot better!!

    I really need to start cracking on with some exam practice and memorising a few statistics, names and explanations mainly. I really cannot wait until my exams are over yet I'm absolutely DREADING Results Day! Lord!

    My 20 marker for ethnicity was 'Outline the evidence for ethnic inequalities in the contemporary UK'.

    So, I structured it a little like this

    Introduction - basically a really brief introduction about how some ethnic groups are subject to discrimination.
    1st area of inequality - workplace - used 3 statistics
    2nd area of inequality - education - used 3 statistics
    3rd area of inequality - crime - used 2 statistics
    4th area of inequality - media - used 2 studies
    Conclusion - just a brief summary of the areas potential for discrimination and racism for some ethnic groups.

    My lecturer told me that your areas of inequality are optional so they don't necessarily have to be all the ones I have done, it can also be in politics, health and housing but you should aim to cover 4 areas and in each area two statistics/studies/concepts are enough as long as you briefly discuss them, but I'd advise 3 in the first two areas to be safe. Each area doesn't have to have the same weighting in content, so you can do what I do and focus more heavily on the first two and lesser so on the last two areas. Aim to write two pages if you have quite average sized handwriting, 1 and a half if small. You should also spend 25 mins on this question at most.

    My 40 marker was 'Outline and assess Weberian explanations of ethnic inequality'

    Introduction: basically explained what ethnicity was and outlined what I would be discussing in the essay
    Weberian explanation more heavy in weighting since it's the explanation in question
    Evaluation: Functionalist explanation
    Evaluation: Marxist explanation
    Evaluation: you could add in either a Neo-Marxist perspective or a Postmodern perspective quite briefly
    Conclusion - summary of essay or a conclusion based on your view which explanation is strongest.

    You should aim to write 3-4 pages for this question and spend about 40 minutes on it as you should aim for 1 mark per minute.

    Since I've wrote quite a bit for the structure I will leave it here. If you want to know what I wrote about for each explanation let me know and I'll do it in bullet point form for you
