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

EMA cut for 16-18 Years olds

John Major

Child Support Act
Child Act

Labour

New Deal
Working Tax Credits
Child Tax Credit
2002 Adoption Laws
2004 Civil Partnership Act

Other Policies:

Only allowed to be married to one person
Extended education til the age of 18

You could be asked questions such as:

3. Examine how social policies have affected family diversity.
4. How have social families affected family life
