Hey guys.
it may be too early to start a thread, but the sooner, the better!

How is everyone revising or going to revise for SCLY3 and SCLY4? I'm doing Mass Media btw.

already struggling to revise due to the amount of material required! :eek:

Most people study Crime and Deviance for unit 4, but I think the options for unit 3 are Beliefs in Society, power and politics, media and global development...

I think my college is the only place does Global Development!!

What questions were used in your mock?

For mass media: globalisation & culture and ownership & control of the media. That was an alright paper.
Crime and Deviance: suicide and gender, with positivist methodology. It was quite hard the 33 marker. D:

And here's the big issue: we've only done theory and methods with a little bit about science, late & post modernity along with Religion... No clue what we can be asked

I'm so glad you have set up a revision thread - I am home studying so I don't have anyone to discuss the work with I have chosen Beliefs in Society and Crime and Deviance!

Hi! I can find the questions for you, I have them in my revision pack (I'm just not with it right now)...

How are you finding revising for the exam? I hate this topic! Have you found any good revision materials online? Or have you made any yourself?

That would be really useful, thanks!

I'm finding the gender stuff quite interesting but am finding that most of my revision time is spent on the Crime and Deviance unit which I find so much more interesting! Can't say I've found any useful revision materials as of yet!

Do you have Rob Webb's textbook? If not, i would recommend it! I don't do beliefs, which is unfortunate. D: but considering that most people do C&D; we can exchange stuff & help each other, if needed be!

No I don't have that textbook - I will check it out, thanks :-) That would be great! There's so much to learn! Do you use any revision sites?
