    Yeah. Hello! Name's Megan, but stuff the introductions.

    i'm sort of determined to prove to both myself and my family that I can actually help people out with Sociology and not just Medicine, as my parents would love to have me believe.

    So if anyone needs any help with anything like layout / content for
    15 / 30 mark answers {unit one- Families & Households} 12 / 20 mark answers {unit two- Education / Educational policy}

    - Definitions for both units
    - Research methods layout / content (unit two papers)

    then let me know please? and please don't be shy.

    I can't really predict what'll be on the exam, but I will say that I have a feeling (aka i've been told by half the college staff) that the exam boards will probably make the exams easier to do as a result of the January exams being scrapped, so there will be more to remember for the June ones, which isn't really fair.

    I can, however, say with a large degree of certainty that they aren't likely to put the same questions on the paper 2 years in a row, so below are links to the JUNE 2013 Unit 1 + 2 exam papers, with a brief overview of the questions below

    - Last years unit one questions
    • Definition (2 mark): Infant Mortality Rate
    • Suggest (4 mark): Rise in life expectancy
    • Identify (6 mark): Change in divorce rate
    • Examine (24 mark): Conjugal Roles


    - Last years unit two questions
    Education :

    • Definition (2 mark): Material Deprivation
    • Identify (6 mark): G/ment policies reducing social-class inequality
    • Outline (12 mark): anti-school subcultures
    • Item (20 mark): Gender difference in achievement and subject choice.

    Research Methods :
    • Methods in context (20 mark): Group interviews / Questionnaires
    • Definition (2 mark) : Objectivity
    • Suggest (4 mark): disadvantages - longitudinal research
    • Suggest (4 mark) : advantages - structured interviews
    • General Methods (20 mark) : Non / Covert ppt. obs.


    I hope this has helped in some form aha

    I predict the 24 Mark question will either be on feminists views to family roles and relationship, social policies, or childhood
