Hi!

So far I'm enjoying sociology this year, I just struggle with getting top marks for essays. So far we've looked at crime and deviance, globalisation, religious organisations, and fundamentalism. I got a C last year for AS, and I really want to bump up my grade for A2.

I'm really enjoying it this year! How about you?

Hi there!
We're doing Global Development and Crime and Deviance right now. I'm finding Global Development ok, but Crime and Deviance is a drag! Much preferred AS Sociology. I got a D last year, so I'm resitting the Families and Households unit to try and help me get the B in need this year, we'll see!
Have you done any mocks yet?

Oooh interesting! Crime and deviance is okay I guess, it's just the stats and theory that annoys me haha, but all that asides it's pretty interesting. Funny thing, last year I struggled with research methods and I learnt it all within a week of before my exam and I got a B in that unit! Families and households I found so easy but I got a C! That was so strange I genuinely expected to do worse lol.

But yeah, we had mocks last week, and we're getting our results next week. The questions were so easy but no one revised so our teachers are really mad because they know we've done terrible haha.

How about you?

I'm resitting one from AS as well, so we're in the same boat. I did my mock a week before last - for A2 topic 3, and wrote about 3/4 of a page for the 9 mark question, a page for the second question (18 marks) and two pages for the 33 mark question, so about four pages for the entire exam. The exam is an hour and a half, so about 10-15 minutes for the first question, 20-30 minutes for the second question and the last hour/45 minutes on the big question.
Hope that makes sense?!

Hi, can we be revision buddies as well? Not to sound weird or anything. Could do with the extra help and most likely will do better with a group.

No, I wouldn't bother, might look good but it doesn't give you any extra marks
