I've got 3 weeks until my exams, i've hugely under performed in the past two years due to ill health and this is my final shot of succeeding so i'm rather stressed out!

I've tried processing the information and writing it out ect but it doesn't help at all. There just seems so much to learn with no way of condensing it down to remember it easily!

Can anyone offer any suggestions or revision methods? I'll be so greatful!

Thankyou

Just do some past paper questions. I wouldn't worry that much about Sociology, the mark schemes can be rather lenient.

Hi! I was in virtually your exact position last year! It's scary to realize quite how much there is to learn. Personally, I didn't find reading the information and writing out to be a great help. I made revision cards of all the important topics and ideas then kept flicking through them to familiarize myself with them. It's up to you what topics you choose, so you could choose important points in the specification, or topics like the dark side of the family, demography, childhood... Or you could go ahead and look at different sociologists and what they said.

At least, that's how I did it last year, and it got me an A. I'm also trying it for A2 and it seems to be working thus far! If you need more help, feel free to ask!

Ahh thankyou so much! I was thinking no one would reply to this thread.

I've gone over other threads to see what the questions were last year as i can't remember so i'll rule those out, i'll briefly go over them but i'll focus on the other topics more, as a lot of people including my teacher are predicting childhood to come up!

I've got multicoloured revision cards and A3 Paper so i'm going to follow your advice and make some mindmaps too!

Congrats on your A! I'd be over the moon of i could achieve that hahah! And good luck for your A2! I'm sure you'll smash it x

Thanks! Just remember that just because something came up last year doesn't meant it can't come up this year too! Oh, and childhood comes up virtually every year in some form so that's a pretty safe prediction!

I'd agree. Mix it all up a bit, it's no fun trying to revise an entire unit all at once. Break it up a bit, Sims works - so would another subject!
