Thank you
Know your theorists and apply that to the question. Answer the question, relate it to a theorist such as Durkheim and explain what he said, give a bit of analysis and return back to the question to summarise.

I got an A* in Unit 1, in Year 10.

Although it was a mock, it was a great achievement, as the first mock I did in early Year 10, I got an E.

I just read through my notes at school, or find a decent revision PDF, there are many on the internet.
Read through them a few times, if you're good at the subject it shouldn't take long.

Then I did a few past papers, to test my knowledge.

It also helps if you know the keywords, as Sociology is a keyword subject.
Also, if you're a slow writer, you might want to practice writing fast, as each section of the paper is 30 minutes, so there is a lot to write, especially for those 12 markers.

Hi, I just wondered if anyone could send me some notes and essay plans via email for Beliefs, research methods and crime and deviance. This will be greatly appreciated if anyone can.
